Tutor a disadvantaged young person (14-18yrs) online 1 hour weekly with The Access Project

What You'll Do: 

The Access Project, an education charity, supports disadvantaged young people to progress to university. We are looking for undergraduates, postgraduates, staff, and alumni who would be able to tutor a young person aged 14-18, online, 1 hour a week in term-time Autumn 2022- Summer 2023 to support them with their academic studies.


•Support a young person in a school subject to achieve the GCSE / A level grades they deserve and to fulfil their potential.

•Inspire, motivate and raise aspirations towards higher education and the world of work.

•Students supported by The Access Project typically achieve a grade higher at GCSE and are four times more likely than their peers to progress to a top-third ranked university.


No prior experience necessary, full training included with start dates through the autumn term.



How does it work?

1. Sign up at www.theaccessproject.org.uk/volunteer

2. Sign up to any of our 2.5 hour training sessions over the summer, there are various dates so you can find one that suits you: During this session you’ll learn everything you need to know for your weekly 1 hour tutoring sessions.

3. You’ll complete a DBS check (criminal records check) and an online safeguarding course.

4. We’ll match you with a student who is looking for support in your subject. In particular, we are seeing high demand from our students for support with sciences and maths so volunteers who are able to support in maths and science subjects would be particularly welcome. There are also many opportunities for volunteer tutors in other subjects including humanities and languages.
