If so, sign up for the Community Language School today! If you are proficient in a language other than English and are over 18 years of age, then yes! We are not necessarily looking for individuals with teaching experience or qualifications, but people who are passionate about celebrating language diversity and share a love for languages, and of course, have an hour to spare on Saturdays to run the classes.

With any new project delivered at the Centre, it's important that they are aligned with our core values, mission, and ethos, so please consider this when applying.
