What are Learning Hubs?
- VTO runs Learning Hubs to support primary pupils with homework and learning in Glasgow and Edinburgh.
- A member of VTO staff runs each Learning Hub with the support of volunteers.
- Senior Pupils from local secondary schools also attend the hubs to provide 1-1 support.
How do Learning Hubs work?
- Learning Hubs run for one hour per week after school, usually from 3 – 4pm and sometimes 4 – 5pm.
- Up to 10 primary pupils attend each week, and volunteers are paired up with a pupil to work with them 1-1.
- Volunteers will also support VTO staff in running the hubs and helping the senior pupils.
- Hubs only run during term time and break for school holidays and in-service days.
- While Covid is still a risk, we ask that all adult volunteers who wish to support a Hub are double vaccinated.
- VTO will reimburse reasonable travel costs to volunteers (public transport, car and cycle mileage).
