Description

Could you spare two hours a week to inspire young people to realise their full potential?

Spire Hub is looking for City university students to become Mentors with us, to support and inspire high-ability 14-15 year old school pupils from disadvantaged backgrounds. It is a brilliant opportunity for anyone interested in education, the voluntary sector or gaining management and leadership experience. We are now recruiting volunteer Mentors on a rolling basis.

What is Spire Hub?

Spire Hub runs after-school clubs for high-ability 14-15 year old pupils from low-income backgrounds. These are students who were top achievers at primary school, but whose progress since is not matching that of their better off peers. In weekly sessions, each 'Hub' helps students to achieve improved grades at GCSE, develop life skills, build confidence and give them the best possible chance to excel academically, in the workplace and in their local communities.

What do Mentors do?

Mentors deliver weekly 2-hour sessions as part of a team of mentors and tutors (qualified teachers). Each Mentor leads a group of six students, running activities from the Spire Hub curriculum and providing academic support and advice on higher education and careers. Most importantly Mentors are positive role models for their pupils, supporting and inspiring them to realise their full potential.

As a Spire Hub Mentor, you’re giving something back, by playing a part in tackling the society-wide problem of underachievement of students from lower socio-economic backgrounds.

This opportunity will assist you in gaining the following skills:

  • Interpersonal/Confidence
  • Teamwork
  • Problem solving/Creativity
  • Leadership/Management

Training will be provided by the organisation for this position:

Mentors will be provided with termly training.
