Action Tutoring is a national charity tackling education inequality in Newcastle. We want to ensure all pupils, regardless of their background, are given the support needed to achieve. We recruit enthusiastic volunteers to deliver English and maths tuition to disadvantaged pupils in school, to enable them to reach their potential.
Volunteering with Action Tutoring is a rewarding way to make a difference to the lives of young people living in your community by supporting for just one hour a week.
We are looking for students, staff and alumni to volunteer as either English or maths tutors (though you don’t need to have/be studying for a degree in the subject you wish to tutor) in one of our partner secondary schools across Newcastle.
You’ll attend a 2 hour training session and apply for a DBS certificate before choosing which day and time you want to volunteer on. Then you’ll be paired with two or three pupils and use our workbooks to provide tailored tutoring weekly for a school term.
Tutoring is a great way to gain some valuable work experience or develop skills for a range of careers, including teaching and academia. We are now recruiting for our programmes beginning in October and November.
Volunteers come from a range of courses and levels.
Volunteers interested in careers in education or academia often benefit from the opportunity to develop experience and skills in a school setting, but this is not a requirement.
Programmes usually run before school (8-9am) or after school (2-4:30pm) on weekdays during term-time.
