Erasmus+ Volunteering

Private Institution of Supplementary Education

Centre of Foreign Language Studies


Is inviting a volunteer for a 10-month project in 2020-2021


Project Description

Volunteering at Step by Step would be interesting for everyone who wants to know what a language school from the inside is. Their contribution to the school’s work can vary from everyday help with printing out handouts to taking part in the development of Step by Step educational programmes.

Step by Step is now a registered trade mark, and in the academic year 2019-2020 we are working on a series of course books for young learners and school children. The help of foreign volunteers in writing texts for culture studies section would be highly appreciated. By participating in the project they will be able to reflect on their everyday experience at home and become ambassadors of their native cultures.

Participating in the events like culture clubs, drama workshops and others will definitely require such social skills as public speaking, active listening, directed dialogue and others. All the required skills will be practiced actively throughout the volunteering experience and, as a result, will be successfully developed and mastered.

If any difficulties occur, our team are always ready to support volunteers in their creative endeavors. Working in a team, on the other hand, will not only be the way to support the volunteers, but also a useful skill for them to develop.

The centre is working in the field of supplementary education, and we are therefore dealing with highly motivated students, curious about the world. During their time in Vladimir the volunteer will assist our teachers and group leaders and take active part in planning, implementation and reflection on the projects, as well as practise public speaking skills, individual consulting, and work in a team. They are also expected to become friends with our students, which might turn their time in the centre into a very enjoyable experience, and increase the mutual motivation to learn more about each others' languages and cultures.

They are supposed to speak English a lot, as well as master their Russian gradually

In 2019-2020 Italian volunteer Michela took part in EVS programme at Step by Step school. Here, you can find some photos from her project and her activities.

In Step by Step school, she joint our teachers, she created games and interesting contents for our students. She took active part in the preparation of our New Year’s show preparing plays, poems and songs for our students, along with a writing contest.

She took Russian language classes at Vladimir University and she took part in some of their events, such as New Year’s international show.

She organised some meetings at the local Pedagogical College to talk about Italian culture and traditions and encourage students to put into practice their English knowledge.

She cooperated also with the local library and other international students to bring out a series of events for Vladimir’s community about literature, foreign languages and culture.
