An education charity supporting disadvantaged pupils to achieve through volunteer tutoring
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. Through this activity our volunteers are able to develop a wealth of different skills (interpersonal, organisational, communication), it also provides a link between them and the youngest members of their community - empowering them to give back.
As an English or maths tutor with us you will chose one of our partner schools to volunteer in. You will work with one or two pupils for an hour a week across the course of a school term; either before, during or after the school day. Sessions are delivered on the school premises at the same time each week; we also have one-off volunteering opportunities. We provide all of our tutors with training and resources, and we will also process a DBS check for you.
