Are you interested in carrying out some volunteering in Walsall? We can help you find the perfect voluntary opportunity either inside or outside of the college.

Why volunteer?

Gain experience. Learn new skills. Help other people. Make new contacts. Try new things. Open doors. Uncover exciting opportunities. Add value to your CV.

Three ways you can volunteer at Walsall College:

1. Become a course rep

This is your opportunity to help shape the future of your college. As an elected course rep, you’ll represent the interests of your peers at council level. You’ll have the chance to take part in cross-college debate and raise the issues affecting you and your course-mates. Nominations take place in September during induction, with elections following in October and training taking place in November.

2. Be a student ambassador

Volunteering as a student ambassador can be very rewarding. Not only is it a great opportunity to develop your communication and teamwork skills, the experience can also make you a more attractive candidate to potential employers. As a Walsall College Student Ambassador, you’ll lead open day tours, help promote the college, attend marketing events, gain work experience, enhance your CV, and much more.
