Academic Support Volunteering

Opportunity

We are seeking university students, corporates and members of the local community to volunteer as Academic Support Tutors to support primary and secondary students during our after-school sessions.
Our after-school Academic Support Programme provides free tutoring and support to young people in a stimulating classroom environment. Young people receive tailored help with homework, coursework, revision and study skills.
Volunteer tutors are an integral part of our centres. Volunteers act as role models, supporting academic progress and providing inspiration and encouragement to young people for whom university education is not necessarily a common expectation.
Volunteers are invited to indicate a preference for supporting a particular age group. Our sessions are separated into primary (age 7-10) and secondary (age 11+).
We ask volunteers to commit one session per week, for at least 12 weeks over the academic year.  Primary Academic Support opens from 3:15pm to 5pm on Tuesdays and Wednesdays. Secondary Academic support runs from 4pm to 5.30pm on Monday and Thursday.

Skills

This role would suit someone who has:  
o Good communication  and interpersonal skills
o An approachable and friendly character
o The ability to inspire and motivate young people
o A passion for supporting disadvantaged young people
o Patience
o The ability to build a relationship with a young person.
 
Our tutors must have a minimum Grade C in English and Maths GCSE.
