Location: Local School, London, Ruislip (see map)

Travel: Ruislip station. The Oaks bus stop.

Start date: 13/01/2020 (ongoing)

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.
