We’re an award-winning charity that runs local learning centres in the heart of communities where the young people we support live. Our centres provide an innovative education programme which includes practical learning support and motivational and confidence-building activities for children and young people aged 7-18. Our aim is to inspire students from the least advantaged neighbourhoods to broaden their horizons and achieve their full potential.
As the UK’s leading university access organisation, our staff team is helping thousands of young people each year to achieve their potential. From Autumn 2021 we will have thirty-seven centres and extension projects across England and Scotland, with ambitious plans to scale-up our provision further over the coming years.
At this exciting time in our evolution, we are looking for candidates to take up roles as part-time Programme Support Tutors. We have roles available in our Birmingham, Coventry, and Manchester North centres. You will work closely with our existing IntoUniversity team, acting as a tutor at after-school Academic Support sessions and supporting the team with programme preparation.
Our ideal candidate has either paid or voluntary experience working with young people, is well-organised and efficient, a good team-player and is someone excited and enthusiastic at the prospect of helping young people reach their potential. You will have achieved a minimum of a GCSE grade C (or equivalent) in Maths and English. You might be a retired teacher keen to use your skills to continue to support children or someone who wants rewarding work to fit in with the school holidays, but applications are welcome from anyone interested. No specialist subject knowledge is required for this role and training is provided.
As a charity with social mobility as its core objective, IntoUniversity is wholly committed to equality of opportunity. We work with children and young people from a diverse range of backgrounds, and we believe that our staff team should be similarly diverse and representative. The more inclusive we are, the better our work will be, and we recognise that we have much more to do in this regard. We are committed to building a culture where students, staff and volunteers are valued for the unique people they are. We, therefore, encourage applications from candidates from as wide a range as possible of ethnic, cultural and social backgrounds. In particular, we actively and warmly welcome applications from Black, Asian and minority ethnic candidates, male candidates and candidates with a disability as they are currently under-represented within IntoUniversity.
If you believe that all young people deserve the chance to achieve their potential regardless of their background and want to play a part in helping them succeed, then we would be delighted to hear from you.
