Work experience

Highly recommended. Please consider applying!

Do you want to help change a child’s future while gaining transferable skills and enhancing your CV?

Pupils from disadvantaged backgrounds are 2.5 times less likely to gain access to University than those from high-income families, and studies have shown that this is linked to poor performance at secondary school.

Our mission is to ensure that a child’s background does not dictate their future. You can help us achieve this! By participating in our Voluntary Leadership Programme you will act as a positive role model to disadvantaged children while helping them reach their academic potential. Pupils who participated in last year’s 10-week Autumn programme showed 50% more improvement than the national average in English and Maths.  

As a Team Up Tutor on our 10-week Summer Leadership Programme, you will have the opportunity to make a lasting impact on children’s lives. You will develop and apply skills in leadership, teaching, presentation and communication through tutoring children from a low-income background. Alongside this, you will also enjoy the following benefits:

  • Full tutor training, detailed lesson plans and resources and in-classroom support from an experienced teacher

  • DBS certificate and Child Safeguarding training

  • The opportunity to earn a recognised leadership qualification through additional training

  • A personal mentor from your career sector of interest, as part of our new Employer Mentoring programme

  • Up to £100 worth of vouchers for coffee and quality food as a thank you gift from our friends at the Department of Coffee and Social Affairs!

Apply now. Go to to select the school you would like to tutor in and submit your application. The deadline for applications is 14th April 2017 and places are filling up fast, so get your application in today!
