Would you like to volunteer in a Sheffield primary school?
We are looking for 'Number Heroes' to volunteer in local primary schools, helping children with their maths and number work, and encouraging the pupils who think they 'can't do maths.'
Be part of a team of superhero volunteers providing vital help to boost children's learning and providing classroom assistance in a school. Don't worry, you don't have to be studying maths or be a maths whizz! You just need to be confident with maths, have a positive attitude and be willing to learn the methods used to teach it in schools.
You will be asked to volunteer one morning (Tues, Weds or Thurs) a week for six weeks (Weeks 7-12).
Come along to the Volunteering Office in the Students Union to sign up. Places will be filled on a first come, first served basis so don’t delay!
What skills do I need?
Experience of working with children is not required. Project training will cover an introduction to working with primary school children.
What will I gain?
Experience of teaching and working with children in a school.

You will be required to attend two training courses - one on Child Safeguarding (various dates) and one about Schools Volunteering on either Tues 16 Oct (1-3pm), Weds 16 Oct (1-3pm), or Tues 23 Oct 3-5pm.
One morning a week for 6 weeks from Week 7-12. It will be on a Tuesday, Wednesday or Thursday morning.
