Project outline: Merthyr Tydfil is situated in the Heads of the Valleys Region and is the smallest local authority in Wales. Merthyr Tydfil has a population of approximately 54,600. Merthyr Tydfil is facing considerable economic and social challenges including: high levels of economic inactivity; low educational attainment and skill levels; low quality jobs and opportunities; and high incidences of long term health problems. Merthyr Tydfil has benefitted over the last few years from a large number of migrant workers moving into the area. Currently, there are 372 children whose first language is not English. These children are spread over 26 of our schools, and between them they bring with them a rich mix of 29 different languages. The EVS volunteers will be working with these children and assisting them in English language acquisition.
Main tasks: The EVS volunteers’ role is to support pupils in schools in Merthyr Tydfil by providing individual and in-classroom support to help these children to develop their English language skills. The volunteer will gain vast experience working in the schools as he or she will be primarily classroom based. The volunteer will provide classroom support to students on a one to one basis or by working in small groups but he or she will be constantly under the supervision of a qualified staff member. Volunteers will be encouraged to develop his or her ’own ‘special interest’ project, through discussions with the pupils, the local community, or other staff members and with support of the supervisor.
EVS vabatahtlik ei pea projekti jooksul tasuma toitlustuse ega majutuse eest. Lisaks antakse vabatahtlikule taskuraha. Lennupiletite maksumus hüvitatakse vastavalt läbitud vahemaale.
