Volunteer Reading Helper in Primary Schools - Leeds, West Yorkshire, United Kingdom

Beanstalk is a national literacy charity that transforms children’s life chances by recruiting and supporting volunteers and placing them in local primary schools. These volunteers work with children who have either fallen behind with their reading, lack confidence, or struggle with their fluency, comprehension or vocabulary.

The charity is searching for members of the community in Doncaster who can spare a few hours a week helping children to become more confident readers. As a Beanstalk reading helper you will work with three children at a local primary school and spend 30 minutes with each child twice a week, during term-time, for at least one academic year.

Very importantly, Beanstalk sessions are meant to be relaxed, informal and fun. By having this one-to-one time with each child the reading helper can help to develop the child’s reading skills and wider language acquisition in a fun and engaging way. Reading helpers are able to tailor resources to the individual interests to ensure it’s relevant to the child.

No experience or qualifications connected to working with children are required to become a reading helper, although DBS and references are taken. Beanstalk provides training and ongoing support. Beanstalk just needs volunteers to have a passion for working with children to give them the best possible chance of improving their confidence and literacy.
