To volunteers in ESOL

Volunteers give so much to ESOL learners throughout Scotland.  Glasgow ESOL Forum and a group of volunteer coordinators are currently developing a National Framework of Good Practice in Working with Volunteers in ESOL and we would like your opinions on what makes a good volunteering placement, specifically in working with ESOL learners. 

Please provide your views using this survey:

ESOL Volunteering Framework Survey

The purpose of the Framework will be to support projects working with volunteers with examples of good practice so that they can ensure a positive volunteering experience and therefore a positive learning experience for the ESOL learners you support. 

The hope is that the framework will also highlight the great work volunteers do in supporting ESOL learners. 

Please provide your views if 

  • you are a volunteer that works with ESOL learners around English language development/practice
  • you volunteer to coordinate this
  • you have recently volunteered doing either of these
  • you volunteer for one or more organisation
  • you volunteer independently of an organisation

Entries that give their names will be entered in a small prize draw to say thank you. (You can also do this anonymously)

Glasgow ESOL Forum really appreciate you taking the time to do this.

For more information, please contact Jo Jarvis, Strategic Manager (Volunteer Tutor Project), Glasgow ESOL Forum at
