Volunteer

Online Volunteer Tutor (GCSE)

Role Summary

The Access Project supports pupils from under-resourced backgrounds to access top universities. We are looking for undergraduates, postgraduates, staff, and alumni who would be able to tutor a young person aged 14-16, online, one hour a week in term-time Autumn 2024- Summer 2025 to support them with their academic studies.

  • Support a young person in a subject of your choice to achieve the GCSE grades they deserve and to fulfil their potential.
  • Build transferable skills, experience and knowledge through ongoing training and development as part of the role.
  • Students supported by The Access Project typically achieve a grade higher at GCSE and are twice more likely than their peers to progress to a top-third ranked university.

No prior teaching or tutoring experience necessary, we provide a full comprehensive training and induction to help you build the confidence to be the best volunteer you can be.

Interested? You’ll need to:

  • Either be currently studying for an undergraduate degree or have an undergraduate degree/equivalent professional qualification.
  • Either have an A Level subject or an undergraduate degree in a subject you wish to tutor at GCSE level.
  • Be able to spare one hour a week in school term time over the next academic year to tutor (starting Sept/Oct 2024), plus 30 mins a week preparation time.
  • Be prepared to undertake an enhanced DBS check (criminal records check) and provide two references (personal or professional).

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 one1 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. Volunteers who are able to support in either of these subjects would be particularly welcome. There are also many opportunities for volunteer tutors in other subjects including humanities and languages.
