Action Tutoring is an education charity working in partnership with schools, to support disadvantaged pupils to achieve, through English and maths tuition. Volunteering with us is an easy and rewarding way to make a difference to the lives of young people living in your community.
We seek to partner with non-selective state schools with at least double the national average of pupils who are eligible for Free School Meals, ensuring our tutoring is reaching the areas where it is needed most.
By volunteering with us for just one hour a week, either in school or online, you can help to improve the future prospects of young people in your community, changing their lives and helping to ensure they leave school with the grades needed to build a bright future.
You will be able to use and develop skills, such as time management, interpersonal and communication skills that will enhance your CV. You will also be having a direct impact on a young person’s academic attainment – an independent evaluator found that having seven or more sessions with us added the value of up to ½ a GCSE grade to that pupil’s results – and you’ll see these changes first hand.
It’s a great way for you to meet like-minded people and do a bit of networking yourselves, as we recruit volunteers from all backgrounds and of all ages, from 18 to 80, to work with us. Our pupils love getting to know you and your experiences give them a real insight into the wider world.
As a tutor you will attend a specially designed training session to tell you everything you need to know about tutoring. You will also be using structured resources, developed by curriculum specialists, to deliver your tutoring.
Once trained you’ll be able to select a programme in a school or online and time slot that fits with your schedule. You’ll then be paired with a couple of pupils and be responsible for tutoring them once a week, for a term. There will be a member of the Action Tutoring team on hand every week to support you throughout. We can reimburse your travel expenses up to the value of £5 per session and provide a reference to validate your commitment.
