The Access Project is looking for volunteers to support a disadvantaged young people aged 14-18 for 1 hour a week Sept-July with their academic studies, through our easy-to-use dedicated online platform. You’ll join a training session during the summer and begin in the early autumn.
● 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 & 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.
No prior experience necessary, full training included with multiple training sessions over the summer and early autumn. Sign up: www.theaccessproject.org.uk/volunteer
In particular, they are seeing high demand from their students for support with Science and Maths so volunteers who are able to support in those subjects would be particularly welcome. There are also opportunities for volunteer tutors in other subjects including English, humanities, social sciences and languages.

● Either have an undergraduate degree / equivalent qualification or be currently studying for an undergraduate degree at a UK university
