    Are you interested in working in education or with primary school students? Do you have a good level of spoken English as well as your native Mandarin? Are you studying Mandarin to degree level? This is an excellent opportunity for any students interested in early development, education or Mandarin language!


    Proficient Mandarin Speakers needed to support teachers in primary and high schools across East Lothian and Midlothian in sharing and exploring Mandarin language and culture.


    We are looking for patient, responsible and enthusiastic individuals to join our group. 


    As a volunteer, you will be involved in facilitating teaching Mandarin to children in primary schools in East Lothian and Midlothian. Your role will be to assist teachers, and to share Chinese language and culture with the children in an exciting and structured way. This commitment will run until June and will give you a fantastic chance to develop skills in communication, teaching and adaptable thinking. You will receive lots of training and support, and will be accompanied by teachers at all times – you don’t need to have worked with children before, just have enthusiasm, an interest in working with children and a desire to develop your skills within the role!
