We partner with Primary and Secondary schools in England to run face-to-face and virtual coaching programmes. Through partnering pupils with relatable role models, we aim to raise their confidence, independence and attainment!
Volunteers will work with a student in a chosen subject over a duration of a school term, once a week at the same school.

There is an attainment gap in the UK between disadvantaged pupils and their wealthier peers. This is exacerbated when pupils have lower confidence in their own abilities and potential. Upward social mobility is made even harder when pupils lack relatable role models who have been to university or have professional occupations. We want to change this!
We look for students with a passion for social mobility and motivated to help others.
We are looking for volunteers who have the potential to deliver high quality sessions and can be relatable role models for their pupils. While it is a bonus, we do not expect coaches to have prior experience working with young people. We ask that our coaches meet at least one the following academic requirements:
- Studying or have studied at degree level (over 18s only)
- An A*-B grade at A-level (or international equivalent) in your chosen tutoring subject or similar discipline (i.e. A-level history to tutor GCSE English Literature)
- A 7-9 (A*/A) at GCSE level (or international equivalent) in the chosen tutoring subject.
Hear from a Coach!
The weekly hour-long sessions are easy to schedule into even a busy university timetable and this small contribution makes such a noticeable difference to a pupil’s confidence and academic performance. I think the combination of tutoring, mentoring and coaching is so effective and I really liked seeing the progress that my coachee made from session to session, in particular the confidence she gained.
