We are looking for enthusiastic and hard-working volunteers to work directly with the children on our summer camps, as part of a larger team of volunteers.

ATE runs UK-based residential camps for children, called Superweeks. As a volunteer you will lead a group of about 8 children, taking part in all of their activities: you will eat at their table, join in their games, and put them to bed in the evening.

To prepare for this, we are running a week-long training course, 13th-20th April 2019, to provide trainees with the resources, skills and confidence to be part of our Superweek team.

This is a fun and rewarding opportunity, which will also provide you with invaluable experience and skills that can be applied to all career paths.

Is a DBS check required for this role?: Yes
Skills and Qualifications Required:

We provide rigorous training for our volunteers - no prior skills or experiences are needed. If you like children, and are enthusiastic and keen to learn, we'd love to hear from you.

What training is available for the volunteer?:

All volunteers are required to undertake a week's training before working on our camps (13th-20th April 2019). We offer frequent non-compulsory CPD weekends and events for our volunteers.
