Tuition Scheme

The UoB Tuition Scheme was established with the aim of inspiring local secondary school pupils to achieve their full potential. We take dedicated, enthusiastic university students and train them to provide tuition to pupils who need a helping hand to achieve their academic goals. We aim to help our pupils take the next step on their pathway to success no matter what their aspirations and regardless of their social and academic backgrounds.

You can get involved as a tutor in Mathematics, Science, or English at levels GCSE and A-Level. Or even as a committee member in our society. All experience levels are invited to apply as extensive training in tuition and safeguarding will be provided by your committee. So don’t worry if you’re a complete beginner, you just need to be motivated and enthusiastic! Ongoing training and support sessions will also be provided to tutors to ensure we provide the best tuition possible and where available we will strive to provide as many resources as we can to aid your tuition.

Finally, we also hold socials throughout the year to reward your efforts and at the end of the year you will all take part in a celebration day with your school and pupils held at the university to celebrate all your hard work and achievements. There is even the opportunity to take part in the Guild’s Personal Skills Award (PSA) where all your volunteering hours will be recognised by the Guild and you will gain a certificate and something to put on your CV for future employers!
