Education Guide Volunteers

Our education visits are some of the best opportunities to engage with the children and young people of the city, and our education guides are instrumental in this goal. We can usually run visits on Tuesdays and Thursday, from either 10am-12pm or from 1pm-3pm. We can accommodate up to 60 children at any one time, however we will typically split them into at least 3 groups.

Our volunteers work in alignment with the ethos of the Church of England, although many are not practising Christians themselves.

What this volunteering opportunity will provide you with:

  • Knowledge of the international significance of the windows, the artists Edward Burne-Jones and William Morris and their links to Birmingham.
  • Experience working with people from a diverse range of backgrounds.
  • Opportunity to work with children and young people in an educational context.
  • Insight into the workings of the cathedral, and experience working in a sacred building and place of faith.
  • The opportunity to practice speaking in various foreign languages dependent on the nationality of visitors you encounter.
  • Opportunities to volunteer in further roles in the cathedral team.
  • Experience working alongside a team of skilled and knowledgeable individuals both clergy and non-clergy
  • Safeguarding and ACT training (this is a requirement)

Depending on the nature of the volunteering role you undertake with us, we may need to carry out an Enhanced Disclosure in accordance with the Disclosure and Barring Service Rules.

All information provided by volunteers with be held in accordance with the General Data Protection Regulation within the Data Protection Act 2018.
