Volunteer as an ESOL Tutor

Talk English is a project funded by the Department of Communities and Local Government, which aims to help people with little or no English, learn English and get involved in the community. 

Learning Partnerships is now recruiting students and volunteers for this exciting project. 

Volunteer to teach learners on Talk English Courses and help people to improve their speaking, listening, reading and writing skills.

The Role

Teaching ESOL is a rewarding yet challenging experience. Focusing on the things people need to do in their everyday lives, such as going shopping, using public transport and going to the doctors, you will help learners to develop their speaking, listening, reading and writing skills.

Volunteering as an ESOL teacher is a great opportunity for you to gain experience and develop new skills while making a difference to peoples’ lives. By volunteering with Talk English you will gain experience of teaching, working as part of a team and working with learners from all over the world. You will also develop your communication, presentation and organisational skills.


We offer free training courses which introduce the role and responsibilities of Talk English volunteer ESOL teachers and ESOL teaching, learning and assessment methods and resources.  For volunteers with teaching experience and/or relevant qualifications we also offer a fast track option.
