Action Tutoring supports young people facing socio-economic disadvantage, who are often experiencing challenging situations outside of the classroom. We are looking for tutors who will remain empathetic and understanding to this group and support them to build their confidence and academic abilities.
You will work with one or two pupils for an hour a week across the course of a school term; usually after school or on a Saturday morning.
Sessions are delivered on the school premises at the same time each week. We provide all of our tutors with training and resources, and we will also process a free DBS check for you.
We generally require our tutors to either be educated to degree level, or to be studying for a degree, and to have a B grade (or above) at A Level (or equivalent) in the subject they wish to tutor. English or maths-related A Level subjects are also considered, such as: history, politics or sociology (for English tutors) and physics, chemistry and economics (for maths tutors).
Successful applicants are required to undertake full training provided by Action Tutoring.
You will not be able to tutor until you have completed this training.
