Become a Get Further Tutor

Our tutors are first-rate graduates with the passion for using their subject knowledge to boost prospects for students from disadvantaged backgrounds and close the gap in educational inequality

"...the students and I leave each session with a real buzz that they’re making progress and gaining in confidence."

Why you Should Become a Get Further Tutor

Without GCSE English and maths, young people are at greater risk of dropping out of education by 18, can struggle to access higher-level qualifications and can face limited opportunities for progression in work.

By becoming a Get Further tutor, you will help students facing challenges in further education to improve their skills and gain key qualifications, supporting them to realise their aspirations for education and work. You will use your knowledge and enthusiasm to transform their life chances – and open doors for opportunities that they wouldn’t otherwise access.

At the same time, you will build a suite of transferable skills, learning how to teach and motivate and supercharging your CV – all while earning. Through Get Further, you’ll have the flexibility to study or work in other roles, alongside tutoring – giving you a unique opportunity unlike most other graduate schemes.

Transform life chances

Young people with GCSE English and maths are significantly more likely to stay in education, study higher-level qualifications and secure better-paid jobs. By becoming a Get Further tutor, you would have a direct impact on the life chances of students facing challenges in education and work.

Kick-start your career

  • Receive expert training on how to be an impactful and engaging tutor
  • Gain unique insight into tackling educational inequality
  • Receive access to expert advice and support for a career in education
  • Build transferable skills to launch your career

Earn £18 an hour

You’ll be paid £18 for every hour of tuition you deliver. You’ll have you the flexibility to build a working week that suits your needs – allowing you to make the most of your time and build your CV.

How our programme works

  • Our tuition programmes start in September, November or February, with tuition continuing until students’ exams (either in November or end of May).
  • We are currently recruiting for tutors to start in September or November and to tutor with us until either November or May.
  • Get Further operates nationwide – our biggest regions are London and Yorkshire but we have partner colleges in the North West, the Midlands and the South East and are seeking to expand to additional regions from the autumn.
  • In the 2020/21 academic year, tutoring was mostly delivered online due to coronavirus restrictions. We anticipate that most of our tuition will be delivered onsite at colleges from September 2021.
  • On average, Get Further tutors do 6 hours of tutoring with us per week. However, for individual tutors, hours range from 1 to 20 hours per week depending on tutor availability and programme demand locally.
  • There are usually opportunities to add more hours during the year as new programmes start or additional students enrol.
