•Inspire, motivate and raise aspirations towards higher education and the world of work.

•Students supported by The Access Project typically achieve a grade higher at GCSE and are four times more likely than their peers to progress to a top-third ranked university.

No prior experience necessary, full training included with start dates through the autumn term.

· Either have an A Level subject you wish to tutor at GCSE (grade B or above) or an undergraduate degree in a subject you wish to tutor at A level.

· Be able to spare 1 hour a week in school term time over the next academic year to tutor (starting Sept/Oct 2021), 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?

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 so volunteers who are able to support in maths and science subjects would be particularly welcome.
