The Exchange was opened in 2006 in order to provide a permanent base for Turn Around. Over the years, thanks to many generous donations, a rich and varied resource for education and leisure has been built up.
Turn Around’s approach to teaching literacy and numeracy is set out in the Volunteer Handbook and training videos that are made available to all volunteer tutors.Find out more about our teaching method
Turn Around volunteers are recruited from many walks life, including retirees, parents with school age children and young people who may be considering a career in teaching or wanting to gain some work experience. Training is provided and all volunteers are given a handbook and invited to regular in-house training days. Turn Around volunteers are kind, patient, non-judgmental and they care about their students progress.See more info on how to become a volunteer tutor
