Opportunity: Volunteer Tutor

We deliver tutoring programmes, in partnership with schools, to support disadvantaged pupils across the country. Education isn’t a level playing field in the UK today, as the income of a child’s parents can directly impact their own academic attainment.

We want to change this through our tutoring support for both primary and secondary pupils - and help pupils achieve regardless of their backgrounds. We recognise how powerful tutoring can be in supporting a child academically and we believe it shouldn’t be accessed only by those who can afford it.

The way we deliver our programmes is by recruiting volunteers as our tutors.

Volunteer participation enables us to offer an intensive level of learning support to the children attending the club, who face considerable disadvantage in their academic development due to the general lack of space and privacy for study that hostel life entails.
