English Conversation Club, Volunteer Training

Are you interested in volunteering? Are you a confident English Speaker? Have you got one or two hours to spare each week? Would you be interested in helping people improve their English speaking skills?

Waltham Forest Adult Learning Service is currently offering training for anyone who would like to be a volunteer running an informal “English Conversation Club” for non-English speaking adults in the London Borough of Waltham Forest.

We already have a number of clubs successfully running in schools, community centres and children’s centres round the borough.

If you are interested in becoming an “English Conversation Club” volunteer, please don’t hesitate to get in touch for further information by emailing conversationclub.als@walthamforest.gov.uk or phoning 020 8496 1130 for more details.
