Volunteer for us

Volunteers play a fundamental role in our classes

All of our classes are led by paid teachers. However, they are also often supported by volunteer teaching assistants. Whether helping to set up the classroom, supporting participants during group work or offering support and advice on local services, the contribution made by volunteers in our classrooms is vital.

In return, volunteers will have the opportunity to:

  • gain experience of English language teaching in a community setting
  • attend our regular training sessions on teaching methods
  • gain support and advice on professional development for those looking to become an ESOL teacher

Our classes are held at various times and locations across London. Classes usually last two hours with a short break for refreshments about half-way through.

How to apply?

Most of our volunteers come from our local partner organisations. However, occasionally there are opportunities, so if you are interested please write an email to volunteering@efalondon.org and our volunteers coordinator will advise you accordingly. Please let us know your relevant experience, availability, location in London and motivations.
