Share a love of reading Have fun

Would you like to support an adult learner to become a confident reader?

Reading can make a huge difference in improving people’s ability to navigate everyday tasks, manage their personal finances, find and retain decent-paying jobs, read to their children, and much more. We are looking for volunteers to become trained Reading Coaches and work with adult learners on a one-to-one basis.

What it looks like in practice:

Meeting a learner weekly, on-site at their college campus, for about an hour a week.

Using ALT’s learner-led model to help the learner get the best out of their reading practice through providing encouragement, positive feedback, and reassurance

Helping the learner practice skills they’re learning in the classroom and encourage confidence and resilience so that they persist with their studies

No prior teaching experience needed
