Team Up - Volunteer Tutor (English or Maths)

Details of the Charity:

Team Up works to reduce the widening attainment gap in education by helping underachieving disadvantaged pupils double their expected progress and improve their future prospects. We do this through inspirational volunteer tutors with the support of qualified teachers.

Details of the Volunteering Opportunity:

Pupils from disadvantaged backgrounds are 2.5 times less likely to gain access to university than those from high-income families - our growing movement aims to change this and enable young people from low-income backgrounds to realise their full potential.

Team Up uses tuition, delivered by inspirational role models, to enable pupils from low-income backgrounds to meaningfully increase their academic attainment to improve the choices open to them.

Volunteers will:

  • Deliver weekly 60/90 minute tuition sessions for a group of 2-4 pupils from disadvantaged backgrounds
  • Use our lesson plans and materials to create inspiring tutoring sessions
  • Provide encouragement and guidance for your pupils alongside academic tutoring
  • Receive weekly training and support in session from a fully qualified teacher

Skills Required:

We assess candidates on a case-by-case basis and conduct interviews with anyone who applies to become a tutor. Typically, we are looking for applicants with a strong desire to help others and act for social change. A grade 6 or above in the GCSE of the subject you wish to tutor (English or Maths) is generally required.

Sessions take place on Friday mornings in Uxbridge, a short distance from the Brunel campus. Transport may be able to be arranged from campus and travel expenses can be reimbursed.

Additional Benefits:

  • Transforming the education of small group of pupils who are coming from a disadvantaged background 
  • Access to: free online seminars exploring a range of vocations, our mentorship scheme, and opportunities for work experience within Team Up.
  • Ability to gain a Leadership award accredited by the Schools, Students And Teachers' network and use Team Up as a reference.
