The Retired and Senior Volunteer Programme (RSVP) in Falkirk encourages those aged 50+ to volunteer and stay active and provides opportunities to those in or approaching retirement to volunteer in a primary or secondary schools. We are looking for volunteers to help out in Falkirk Primary Schools.
Volunteers with a wealth of different experience and skills are welcome, especially those who can help with English and maths. School Volunteers are not teachers, however, the individual attention they can give helps develop essential skills, as well as fostering children’s overall wellbeing and confidence.
Volunteers usually go into school for one session a week. They give one-to-one help to children selected by the teachers to benefit from it. Volunteers liaise closely with teachers to complement the work in the classroom.
