Home Language Qualifications Volunteer

After18 runs a successful education project. We aim to support young people who arrive in the UK late in their schooling to gain as many qualifications as possible so they are not disadvantaged in the workplace.

In previous years we have supported students to take GCSE qualifications including in their home languages. We are looking for a suitable volunteer to support this.
