What experience do I need?
You don’t need to have previous tutoring experience, but you’ll need to show you are an approachable and friendly person that is able to support the children and young people who access our Learning Hubs.
What will I do?
We’ll give you training before you start volunteering to make sure you’re confident working with a tutee. We’ll teach you useful techniques for engaging with students and how to get the most out of a session. We also have lots of handy resources to make your role even easier!
Will I need a DBS?
Yes – if you are aged 16 and over. Don’t worry if you don’t have one, we can arrange this for you at a low cost.
What about travel?
We can reimburse your bus and metro travel expenses, so you’re not left out of pocket!
How do I apply?
You’ll need to complete a registration form and email it to us: firstname.lastname@example.org
What happens next?
After reviewing your registration form, you will be invited to a training/induction session where we’ll chat about the role and agree the day and time that you’ll deliver your sessions.
What will my commitment be?
The parents we work week register their children to 6-week tuition blocks, which are scheduled throughout the academic year to coincide with school half-terms. Sessions take place Monday-Thursday, 5 pm-6 pm, and also on Saturdays, 1 pm-2 pm. We ask that you deliver at least one of these sessions per week for a minimum of 6 weeks.
Why should I volunteer?
Giving something back to your community is an invaluable experience, and you will also build skills that are useful for further education and future employment.
