  • Tutor a young person aged 14-18 for 1 hour a week in term-time for the academic year September 2019 - May/June/July 2020 (end-date depends on exam dates). We are looking for undergraduates, postgraduates, staff and alumni from the University of Birmingham who would be able to tutor a young person in Birmingham to help them to improve their grades and fulfil their potential. No prior teaching experience required - we will give you all the information and resources you'll need in our volunteer training. Before volunteering with us, we ask you to sign up on our website and find a time that suits you to come to an evening training session with us (sessions available throughout the summer and autumn in Birmingham city centre), and complete our short online safeguarding course. Please note that tutoring will take place in a public place convenient to you both. We recommend meeting at a public space on campus such as the university library, or a cafe. To tutor at A level, we ask that you already have completed a degree in the subject you'll tutor and to tutor at GCSE we ask that you have are either studying towards your undergraduate degree or have already completed a degree, and that you have an A level (grade B or above) or equivalent qualification in the subject you'll tutor. Tutoring is part of a wider programme provided by The Access Project. What's unique about our programme is that we tackle three key barriers to higher education: not getting the grades their talent deserves, not seeing university as an option for ‘people like them’, and not having the support and guidance to make a competitive application. Our programme combines tutoring with in-school support provided by a member of our staff who works in each school to delivery assemblies, workshops, university trips and 1 to 1 mentoring for all the students we support.
