Become a Conversation Club Volunteer

Local volunteers lead our community Conversation Clubs which have proven to be a hugely successful programme since starting in 2016.

Volunteers attend a free five-week training course to learn how to support groups of adults who have English as a second language. The training courses are City and Guilds-accredited. Courses run throughout the year. For more information about becoming a Conversation Club volunteer contact us by email using the button below.
