Role Description: 

What will I be doing?

Pupils from disadvantaged backgrounds are 2.5 times less likely to gain access to university than those from high-income families. Join Team Up's growing movement and help us change this.

As a participant on our Leadership programme, you will provide high-impact tuition to young people from low-income backgrounds, helping to tackle educational inequality in London. Equipped with full training and detailed resources, you will tutor a small group of pupils who are currently underperforming and provide them with the academic support, encouragement and inspiration they need to get back on track.

Deliver weekly 60 - 90 minute tuition sessions in a local school.

Use the resources provided to prepare inspiring lessons.

Drive results by submitting and reflecting on performance data.


What impact will this have?

Meaningfully increase your pupils' academic grades: pupils on our 2016/17 programme showed, on average, 50% more improvement than the national average in English and Maths

Improve your pupils' self-esteem: 87% of pupils agreed that they felt more confident in the subject in which they received tuition

75% of our tutors felt the programme made a difference to the young people they work with: “Thank you for creating such amazing opportunities for both students and tutors. [As a Team Up tutor] your hard work really makes a difference and it’s such a rewarding experience”


We are looking for volunteers who can commit for at least ten weeks, once a week.


What else do I need to know?

By joining this programme, you will join a growing and active community of people helping to create a fairer education system for young people in the UK and have the opportunity to develop your skills, enhance your employability and expand your professional networks: 

- Receive an SSAT accredited leadership qualification upon successful completion of the programme 
- Be invited to attend leadership seminars and networking events hosted by our partners 
- Have the opportunity to gain a mentor from a career sector of interest, whether you’re looking to excel in your current profession or considering a career change
