Writing Group Tutor

Location: Skills and Training

We would like to offer group Writing sessions to the ladies at the Marylebone Project. As a Volunteer Writing Group Tutor, you would support our ladies to gain the confidence and skills to develop their creativity and English language skills.

If you are confident in your creative writing, would be comfortable leading a weekly tutoring session for a small group of service users, and are interested in empowering homeless women to learn new skills, we would be delighted to hear from you! Although previous tutoring experience is not essential, some experience of skill sharing may be beneficial.

The Marylebone Project will provide any resources required to deliver the tutoring and we reimburse all reasonable out-of-pocket expenses for our volunteers.

Role objectives:

  • To facilitate regular, small group creative writing sessions for service users, enabling them to develop their creativity and language skills
  • To devise a tutoring programme enabling support learners to develop the confidence and basic skills necessary to write independently
  • To select and advise on resources for delivering the tutoring sessions and enhance participants’ learning
  • To regularly monitor and record students’ progress
  • To ensure that the women behave respectfully to one another during the session
  • To intervene during low level disputes between service users i.e. minor disagreements/misunderstandings
  • To report any issue and concern to the Centre team
  • In the event of a serious incident occurring, immediate contact will need to be made with staff on shift (i.e. via telephone or panic alarm)
  • To maintain the level of confidentiality of service users in line with the Marylebone Project policies and procedures
  • To follow the Marylebone Projects ‘code of conduct’ and ‘boundaries and good practice’
