The Access Project supports students from disadvantaged backgrounds to access top universities. They are looking for volunteers who would be able to tutor a young person aged 14-18, online, one hour a week in term-time Autumn 2022- Summer 2023 to support them with their academic studies.   

  • 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 higher education and 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.

Sign up to any of the 2.5 hour training sessions over the summer, there are various dates so you can find one that suits you: During this session you’ll learn everything you need to know for your weekly one hour tutoring sessions. 

You will be matched with a student who is looking for support in your subject. In particular.  The project are seeing high demand from their students for support with sciences and maths so volunteers who are able to support in maths and science subjects would be particularly welcome.  There are also many opportunities for volunteer tutors in other subjects including humanities and languages.
