Primary School Volunteering

 About Primary School Volunteering

Unfortunately this project will not be running in while we arrange a new DBS process. 

We have partnered up with local Primary Schools in Cardiff to provide classroom assistant volunteering roles. This project is ideal if you are looking to
gain experience in a classroom, or for those who need to complete set hours for their PGCE. Volunteering as an inclass assistant, you will gain insight into
a classroom environment and the Key Stage 1 & 2 curriculum.

Volunteer activities vary from school to school but can include listening to readers, helping with group work, and helping to facilitate play during school lunch-times. 

If you would like to take part in this project please sign up below and email Also, you will need a DBS check for this project. Please see the DBS info page to find out how to apply for one for free through Cardiff Volunteering

The Classroom Experience Project is run by the Work Experience Team within Student Futures in Cardiff University. The Classroom Experience Project works in partnership with over 25 schools in the South Wales area.

The project provides classroom-based work experience opportunities for Cardiff University students interested in a career in teaching. First-hand experience within a classroom environment is a great way to develop skills and experience needed to progress on to a teacher training course or gain relevant skills to pursue a career in education.

Students who join the project will be equipped with a voluntary enhanced DBS check and attend an induction run by Cardiff University before attending a placement in a school. Placements are flexibly set up around yours and the school’s timetable and roles include classroom assistants, with event or project-based support or revision-based support.

The Classroom Experience Project is a great way to give back to the local community and support schools, teachers, and pupils.

Please contact to find out more about joining.

Roles are advertised on your Student Futures account under the Work Experience scheme list.
