Help our students to fight educational inequality

(3 September 2015)

The Tutor Trust is looking for 150 Humanities students to become primary school tutors in Greater Manchester. In the past the Trust has employed exceptional Humanities students and is keen to recruit more this year. The deadline for applications is Tuesday, 13 October 2015, so please encourage your students to apply.

The Tutor Trust is a not-for-profit educational charity aiming to make quality tuition available to children who need extra academic support, regardless of their socio-economic background. Since their first tuition session in February 2012, they have worked with over 9,000 children across 150 schools in Greater Manchester and as they expand their operations for 2015-16 they are looking for additional students to take on paid work in primary schools that can fit around their studies.

Students who work as tutors receive professional training from qualified teacher trainers and develop transferable skills that really boost their CVs, whilst also serving local disadvantaged communities in Manchester and making a real positive difference to children’s lives.

The Tutor Trust has recruited some outstanding tutors from the Faculty in the past, and would like to encourage as many Humanities students as possible to apply. One student who worked as a tutor commented: “Working for The Tutor Trust was perfect for me. I was already working part-time for a similar charity and was looking for a new opportunity to expand on my experiences and earn some money! The Tutor Trust offered the flexibility I needed and more importantly, their agenda was something I passionately believed in. The whole experience was hassle free and rewarding. The training provided was in depth and comprehensive and gave me all the tools I needed to help children achieve their full academic potential.”

Please encourage your students to consider applying to the Tutor Trust. The deadline for applications is Tuesday, 13 October 2015. Further information can be found at:
