As a Reading Coach, your Coordinator and local Literacy Specialist would provide you with whatever ongoing support you needed for your coaching sessions. There are also local Coach meetings which are an opportunity to discuss your experiences and receive further guidance and ongoing training. If you become a member of a local Management Team, you would be supported by your Team Leader as well as Read Easy UK’s Regional Adviser.
We hold volunteer conferences and forums throughout the year which you will be invited to attend.
All groups are encouraged to have an expenses policy in place for volunteers who incur travel and other expenses while carrying out their roles. The overall principle is that volunteers should not be out of pocket because of their volunteering, but that all volunteers must seek to get good value for the organisation. Speak to your local group about this during the application process.
