Our final Volunteer in the Spotlight this week to celebrate Volunteers Week is Manuela. She has been volunteering with us for over two years whilst completing her course at Newcastle Collage. She is now going on to teach at Newcastle City Learning Centre.
Here is a short interview with Manuela about her time at Success4All:
How have you found your experience?
I have found my volunteering experience – supporting learners after school at Success4All very positive and rewarding.
What has been the highlight/s?
In my opinion, the positive and multicultural learning environment at Success4All has been the highlight in this educational setting.
Where will go from here?
Personally, I have gained knowledge and developed my teaching skill by volunteering at Success4All and my PGCE course at Newcastle College. Now, I am working as a Spanish tutor at Newcastle City Learning.
How have we helped you to reach there?
Success4All and all its staff members have supported me to gain teaching experience and have given me guidance through the tutorial meetings. I have benefited from this teaching experience and the staff support. All of these have been very positive towards my professional development.
