Do you want to improve your skills in English and maths?

Do you want to work with our Volunteering Team, and deal with enquiries from people who want to volunteer with Mencap?

It is important to make sure that an apprenticeship is right for you so we would need to talk to you and look at some of the skills you have already around work, travelling, English and maths. If we think that you would make a good apprentice we would be able to support you to make this a success.
