CLASSS (Community Leeds After-School Study Support) is an entirely voluntary supplementary school – all staff and tutors are volunteers. Their vision is to improve the educational achievements of children and young people in the metropolitan district of Leeds, particularly the Chapeltown, Harehills and Chapel Allerton areas (areas recognised for their high incidence of deprivation). The age range of the children is from 7 years to 18 years. Subjects covered are Literacy, Numeracy and Science. There are over 60 children registered and the attendance record is extremely good, averaging 72%.
The pupils, and their parents, aspire to a better future – they want to achieve good qualifications and to build worthwhile and successful careers. CLASSS aims to help these youngsters to reach their academic potential and to work towards their ambition to succeed in life.
CLASSS are looking for more volunteer Tutors. This is a really good opportunity to develop your skills, particularly if you
Are looking for experience working with young people or in an educational setting
Want to develop or demonstrate your interpersonal skills
Are keen to inspire young people to enjoy learning!
Volunteer Tutors are supervised by a professional teacher.
The class runs every Thursday during term time from 5.45pm to 7.30pm at the Technorth Family Learning Centre, LS7 3NB. Volunteers are asked to commit for six months.
