Thank you for your interest in volunteering as a tutor with Action Tutoring.
To help us assess your suitability to volunteer with us as a tutor, please complete the form below in full.
Please note the following before applying:
- The minimum commitment is an hour a week (not including preparation time) across the course of a school 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 a B grade (or above) at A Level (or an equivalent qualification) in the subject they wish to tutor. English or maths-related A Level subjects are also considered, such as: history, politics or sociology (for English tutors) and physics, chemistry and economics (for maths tutors). If your qualifications do not match these requirements, we would still encourage you to apply. Once we review your answers we may then contact you to arrange a telephone interview with you, to chat through your answers and ask a question relating to the subject you've offered to tutor.
- We take all previous experience into consideration, so please do include anything you think might be relevant.
- 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.
- Our programmes run over the course of the school terms. We do not work in schools during the summer holidays. Generally they take place early morning (8am), mid-morning (10am) or mid-afternoon (3pm). We only have Saturday sessions in London.
