GRADUATE TUTOR

Get Further is the first charity dedicated to providing catch-up tuition to students facing challenges in further education.

We’re recruiting talented graduates to deliver our fully-resourced, innovative tuition programme to students in colleges who have fallen behind in English and maths. As a Get Further Graduate Tutor, you will have a direct impact on the life chances of students – helping them to improve their skills and achieve key qualifications that open doors for future study and work.

Without GCSE English and maths, young people are more likely to drop out of education and are locked out of many university courses, apprenticeships and key professions for life. In the fallout of Covid-19, now more than ever, young people who miss out on these crucial qualifications need extra support to get their education back on track.

Having a tutor to provide tailored support and rebuild confidence can help students close gaps in their education – but too often, this is out of reach for young people from disadvantaged backgrounds studying in further education. Apply now to become a Graduate Tutor and help more young people GET FURTHER – so that this moment doesn’t hold them back for the rest of their lives.

LOCATION: Get Further operates nationwide – our biggest regions are London and Yorkshire but we also have partner colleges in the North West, Midlands, South East and East of England and are seeking to expand to additional regions from the autumn.

HOURS: Min. 2 hours per week for 12 weeks.

SALARY: £18p/h, plus holiday pay.

WHAT WE’LL OFFER:

You’ll be paid £18 for every hour of tuition you deliver. We aim to schedule tuition in 2 – 3-hour blocks, and you’ll have the flexibility to build a working week that suits your needs. Placements typically range between 1-20 hours per week (on average, tutors deliver 6-hrs per week).

Get Further provides you with all the resources for delivering the programme to your students – so you don’t have to spend extra time designing lessons.

We’ll provide you with expert training in how to engage and motivate your students, and tutor with impact - allowing you to develop transferable skills to launch your career.

You’ll receive ongoing support, professional development and networking opportunities to advance your career. Should you wish to stay in the sector beyond the programme, we provide you with support and advice for pursuing a career in further education.

You’ll gain a unique insight into tackling educational inequality while making an immediate difference to the lives of your students.
