Hi

I've been having trouble finding any volunteer teaching projects in the Midlands area. I was looking for teaching opportunities on free classes for immigrants or something like that. Any ideas?

Thanks

You could contact Brasshouse Language Centre
50 Sheepcote Street
Birmingham
B16 8AJ

http://www.birmingham.gov.uk/cs/Satellite?c=Page8child

e-mail : brasshouse@birmingham.gov.uk

This is the largest adult education centre in the UK. I have taught several CELTA courses there, and they always seemed to be keen to get volunteers to teach asylum seekers/immigrants.

Worth a try?

Great! Thanks. I'm actually applying to do my CELTA there in January. I'll get onto them.

I tried contacting them and was referred to the Birmingham city council website. Same goes for every college I apply to in Birmingham. Not being able to contact directly is really frustrating.
