Could you help to make Birmingham's next generation ready for the working world? Can you transfer knowledge from your workplace to the classroom? Can you spare a few hours a week for four weeks as a Words for Work volunteer?

Words for Work aims to challenge inequality in employment opportunities for young people. Regardless of background, we aim to provide students with the skills they need to be successful.

The National Literacy Trust are working with a secondary school in Birmingham and we are looking for volunteers from all walks of life to support our Words for Work programme.

These workshops help students to develop their verbal and written literacy and their workplace communication skills, including preparing for interviews, active listening, delivering effective presentations and how to communicate with clarity in both written and oral communication.

You will be supported throughout by a dedicated Project Manager from the National Literacy Trust and will be given the training to feel confident working with young people.
