About the Role:
Learning Volunteers assist with the Museum’s exciting programme of child and family events. The events are a great opportunity for families to learn together, whilst taking part in arts and crafts activities. Holst Victorian House also runs a school learning programme which gives teachers and children the chance to learn more about their Local Significant Figure, Gustav Holst, whilst experiencing life in a modest Victorian home. We are looking for

✔ Enthusiasm and willingness to help
✔ Good interpersonal skills
✔ A desire to meet new people and make new friends
✔ An interest in supporting and promoting the Holst Birthplace Museum
✔ The ability to commit to set dates in advance and communicate with staff about availability
Training and Support:
Volunteers will be given a full induction explaining the role and staff who they’ll be working with. Thereafter, volunteers can observe sessions until they feel comfortable to lead sessions themselves (support will be available at all events). As a person who is working with young people, a DBS check may be required.
- Volunteering at the Holst Victorian House is a great way to meet new people and make new friends. This role is suited to those who would like to develop their skills in education, play work or Early Years development or people who would like to work with families in the local community.
