Volunteer Job Advert - reading & writing tasks
This teaching and assessment resource combines reading comprehension and a letter writing task based on an advert for a volunteer role as a Customer Service Assistant for a charity shop.
In Task 1, students read the job advert and answer questions to check their understanding. In Task 2, they make notes about their personal skills and qualities, then draft and write a letter to apply for the volunteer role. An additional, extension task is provided for students who either work at a faster pace or at a higher level, and involves writing a personal statement for a college course.
The content is about volunteering in a charity shop and helping people with life-limiting conditions, and is therefore useful for embedding employability skills and Equality and Diversity within the English framework. The resource was designed for an Entry Level 3 English and ESOL group but it could also be used for students from Entry level 2 to Level 1.
