Advice line volunteer
Our advice line volunteers provide legally based information, advice and support to parents with children with special educational needs and disabilities. Our advice line volunteers work remotely and provide advice over the telephone.
Could this be you?
Whatever skills you already have you will be able to put them to use in a completely new environment. A genuine concern for helping get the right education for children with special education needs and disabilities is essential. You’ll need to keep things confidential and have the time to take calls on our advice line. You will need to be reliable, willing to get involved and communicate effectively.
For more details about the role, please see the attached role profile.
What can you expect from us?
The opportunity for training and development on a personal level. Before volunteering on the advice line you’ll need to complete our comprehensive three stage training. You’ll then have access to our ongoing training and online library of resources.
You’ll be assigned a supervisor for the entire time you’re volunteering with IPSEA. They’ll be on hand to offer feedback about your performance and support your development in the role.
Finally, you’ll have the opportunity to make a real difference to young people.
