The Education Department
The Education Department at Norwich Cathedral welcomes over 15,000 schoolchildren and many thousands of individuals, families and community groups each year.
The Department runs a thriving programme of schools and community learning ranging from tours and special activity events/days to exhibitions to workshops in the Labyrinth and Herb Garden.
Opportunities exist to volunteer for a range of practical activities in this exciting and vital Cathedral ministry, for example ,guiding children's tours and helping at family workshops.
Many Education volunteers are former teachers but this is not essential; the most important requirement is enthusiasm. There are also opportunities for those able to take foreign language tours.
All Education volunteers need a Criminal Records Bureau check which the Cathedral will discuss with you and arrange.
The aims of Norwich Cathedral Library support the wider mission of the Cathedral. In particular, the Library shares the responsibilities of welcome, fellowship and teaching.
The principal role of Library volunteers is to provide a service to users of the Library; to welcome all those who enter the Library and to support the learning of Library users.
The Library seeks, in turn, to offer volunteers an opportunity to learn, particularly through the undertaking of Library tasks, and the fellowship of Library users and other Library staff,, both voluntary and salaried.
