What will I learn?

MEAS are a small council service who work in schools and early years settings to help teachers meet the needs of children learning English as an additional language. We regularly provide training and support volunteers who speak community languages to help new arrivals in schools.

Volunteering can give you the opportunity to help children who share your language as well as giving you useful experience of working in UK schools.

This short EAL Volunteers Online Course provides information about the role of volunteers in schools, including safeguarding and language development. 

A DBS check is also included.

This course is delivered online over 5 weeks.

This course is delivered by Wirral Council Minority Ethnic Achievement Service (MEAS). Please contact meas@wirral.gov.uk for more information.
