How You Can Help

*** Volunteering ***

We are currently looking for volunteers for these roles:


The main task is to teach/tutor a small group of adults whose first language is not English.


Volunteer Tutor training workshops take place regularly. A mentor will advise and support a new volunteer tutor.


Qualified or trainee teachers of any subject are welcome, ideal for someone with a TEFL certificate or degree who would like some teaching experience, but friendliness, patience & respect for other cultures are as important as qualifications.

  1. Hello, I’m currently doing a TEFL course with the intention of teaching abroad at the start of next year. I hope to have finished my course within the next two weeks and although I have done a practical weekend in-class course I still feel quite daunted at the prospect of teaching a whole class in a foreign land. Basically, I’d quite like to get some experience and as you are looking for volunteers, thought I’d ask to see if you think I could help you while you help me? I have a full time job at the moment so I’m limited as to how many classes and what times I’d be able to volunteer but I’m really keen (and nervous) to give it a go and get some experience! Would it be at all possible to sit in on a class to see how it works/get some ideas? I’d be available until the start of February or possibly longer.

    • Hi Suzee,

      Thank you very much for your interest in volunteering with the Stirling School of English. We’ve had many tutors who got a job abroad after volunteering with us. We usually ask new tutors to observe some classes before they are given a tutor group or do one-to-one teaching.
      We have classes on Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday mornings from 10 to 12.30 at the Rock Centre and on Tuesday and Thursday evenings from 6 to 8.30 at Wallace High School. It would be best if you could come to either the Rock Centre or to Wallace High School for a chat and we’ll take it from there.
      Please let me know which day would suit you best,
      Looking forward to seeing you,

      kind regards
