Please note the following before applying:
  • The minimum commitment is an hour a week (not including preparation time) across the course of a term. Only submit an application if you are confident that you will be able to make this commitment.
  • We generally require our tutors to either be educated to degree level, or to be studying for a degree and to have an A or B grade at A Level or equivalent in the subject they wish to tutor.
  • 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.
  • 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.

  • All successful applicants will be required to complete an enhanced DBS criminal record check. Our policy on the recruitment of ex-offenders can be found here. Action Tutoring complies fully with the relevant Code of Practice and undertakes to treat all applicants for positions fairly.
