The Access Project have been enabling young people from underrepresented backgrounds to realise their potential, and access top Universities for the last 15 years.
Inequalities in the education system have only been exasperated since the Covid pandemic. With the additional strains of the cost of living crisis schools, charities and parents are frank about the risk of talented young people from under-represented backgrounds being failed by the system.
As experts in this field, their program works to address this risk and inequality. The young people on this programme are almost twice as likely to access top Universities as their comparable peers. That is almost twice as likely to gain from the unique insights, education and opportunities that accessing a top University provides.
They are excited to bring to you the opportunity to volunteer as an academic tutor, and be this change.
You can tutor a young person aged between 14-18 years, online, for 1 hour a week; starting from September 2023.
How do you do this?
All tutoring is delivered online, through a purpose built platform. Tutors have access to the extensive resource library and professional support from staff, as well as a comprehensive training programme.
No prior teaching experience is necessary, as you are provided with everything you need to get started as a volunteer tutor. This includes guidance on lesson planning, topics and resources from The Access Project.
Tutorials will typically take place after school hours, starting no later than 6pm, and can be arranged to fit your availability on a week by week basis.
