You will be paid £18 for each hour of tutoring you deliver.
We review applications on a rolling basis. We are currently reviewing applications for tutors to start in September or November 2021. To maximise your chances of securing a position, please apply as soon as possible. We are screening applications now and will begin running assessment centres at the end of June.
Tutors should have or be expected to obtain a 2:1 (or above) degree. In addition, we require our tutors to have either an A Level (or equivalent) of grade B (or above) in an English or maths-related subject. For English, we consider subjects such as: English, history, politics or sociology. For maths, we consider subjects such as: maths, physics, chemistry, economics or statistics. In some cases, we will consider tutors for maths if they don’t have a maths-related A level qualification, if they have demonstrated a strong performance at GCSE maths (A or A*). If you are unsure whether you meet the subject requirements, please get in touch.
Tutors are also required to have good English Language skills (note, in some circumstances, we may ask for proof of your English Language skills).
We require all tutors to have an enhanced DBS check conducted no earlier than 1st September 2020 – if you don’t have one, we can arrange one for you, and ask for two references.
No, you will only be asked to tutor one subject in the Get Further programme (although you can tutor in both subjects if you meet the eligibility criteria and attend the training for each subject).
Once you have completed the Get Further training, you will join our pool of Get Further tutors. We will then start looking for a tuition placement for you among our partner colleges. Our main programme start dates are in November and February. Placements continue until the students sit their GCSE exams in November or May. Note, tuition is only delivered during term times, so there are breaks for the Christmas and Easter holidays and half terms.
Our students are a mix of 16- to 18-year-olds and adult learners (aged 19+).
Tutors must complete Get Further training before they start tutoring. During training, tutors will cover how to engage and motivate young people, the principles of effective English or maths pedagogy, how to deliver tuition with impact, and your statutory safeguarding requirements.
Tutors will be paid for training. Training is expected to run for 10 hours over two days and will be paid at the national living wage.
All tutors need to have a valid DBS certificate issued no earlier than September 1st, 2020, or be signed up to the DBS Update Service.
If you don’t have a up to date certificate, we can arrange an enhanced DBS for you. This will cost £50.40, which we will deduct from your training pay.
