The Access Project - Seeking Volunteer Tutors

Jul 7, 2020

The Access Project is looking for volunteers to support a disadvantaged young people aged 14-18 for 1 hour a week from Sept 2020 with their academic studies, through their easy-to-use dedicated online platform. 

  • Support a young person in a school subject to achieve the GCSE / A level grades they deserve and to fulfil their potential
  • Inspire, motivate and raise aspirations towards further education & 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 over the summer and autumn with start dates throughout the autumn term.

Interested? You'll need to:

  • Either have an undergraduate degree / equivalent qualification or be currently studying for an undergraduate degree at a UK university
  • Have an A Level in the subject you wish to tutor at GCSE 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 between Sept-Nov 2020), plus approx 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? 

1. Sign up at 

2. Training: They’ll then invite you to choose any of our 2.5hour training sessions between July- Dec 2020 that suits you. During this session you'll learn everything you need to know for your weekly 1 hour tutoring sessions. 

3. You'll complete a DBS check (criminal records check) and an online safeguarding course

4. They’ll match you with a student who is looking for support in your subject. In particular, they are seeing high demand from their students for support with sciences and maths so volunteers who are able to support in those subjects would be particularly welcome. There are also many opportunities for volunteer tutors in other subjects including humanities, social sciences and languages.
