Teachers’ Employment and Volunteering Opportunities

The ELKOLET Charity is seeking qualified Teachers to join their Alternative Education Provision in Alton, Hampshire. The provision works closely with vulnerable young people who struggle in mainstream education and are in danger of permanent exclusion. Ultimately, the goal is to help these young people to re-engage with their mainstream education and social journey. Students currently range from Year 8 to Year 12.

A passion to help young people fulfil their educational potential and compassion for each young person and their individual circumstances is a must as successful candidates will be Mentors not just Teachers.

The ability to teach more than one subject to a range of abilities would be a great advantage.

Contracts can be full or part-time; volunteering opportunities also available.

Please email Paula Knowles on [email protected] for more information.

Fantastic idea :)

Spectrek is one of the great global recycling projects organised by Lions Clubs International and involves collecting and redistributing spectacles no longer required by the owner to new users in developing countries. Millions of people in developing countries have uncorrected refractive errors (near-sightedness, far-sightedness or astigmatism) that can be easily diagnosed and treated with corrective lenses.

For children, clear vision means a better education, healthier development, for adults, it means greater employment opportunity and economic strength and for seniors it means less dependence on others and it costs Lions Clubs less than 5p to supply a pair of recycled spectacles to change someone’s life.
Spectacles collected in Alton are sent to a location in the UK for sorting, cleaning, grading and shipping directly to developing countries where local Lions Clubs organise the testing and distribution.

Glasses can be handed in at the monthly craft market on Cross & Pillory Lane (2nd Saturday of the month March - December)

ELKOLET is an established Charity working with Young People and their families in Alton and surrounding communities. Our purpose is to help young people, who struggle to adjust to mainstream education & life, to become self-confident, successful members of society. We support young people through our Alternative Provision, our Family support team EMBRACE and through our Equipping for Life programmes and activities.

ELKOLET is looking for volunteers who can offer an hour or more a week to support our young people. Full training will be given and one of our full-time staff will be on hand at all times.

This support can be given in many different ways - you chose which best suits you as well as the time of day you can offer.

FOR EXAMPLE:-
- Do you have a hobby or a passion to share? Woodwork, Mechanics, Art, Knitting etc.
- Do you play a musical instrument especially Piano or Guitar and could teach a young person to play and play alongside them?
- Are you good at Maths or Science and happy to help a young person one to one with their studies. Maybe to help them see these subjects in a different way?
- Are you a qualified Teacher or a Tutor who would be happy to volunteer some of your time working with small groups or one to one?
- Do you have a skill or a trade you could teach one to one or small groups?
- Do you exercise or play a sport and be happy to teach a young person some skills?

If you would like further information or wish to apply, please email us at [email protected] or call: 07528 751 549
