English plus Volunteering
What will I get? What will I do?
Real-life working experience
Improve your language skills
Volunteer for up to 30 days with a registered charity on the Standard Visitor route
Volunteering can be in charity shops
Office administrative and finance work
Placements are confirmed 4 weeks prior to the start of the placement itself (which may be during your English course).
These will take place for a minimum of 4 weeks and may be full time before your volunteering starts, or part time while you are also doing your volunteering. You can focus on Business English, English for Work or General English for Life
You may be helping with office work in a charity either in finance or general administration. You may even work in retail in one of our Oxfam shops selling to the local community. Either way you will get good practice in using your English and gain important life and professional skills.
