About Pimlico Connection

This peer-tutoring scheme has been running at Imperial since 1975 and sees students volunteer as tutors in local schools for approximately 17 weeks (November to March). The scheme aims to inspire students in STEM subjects, raising aspirations by providing students with positive role models for STEM subjects and higher education.

Since 2020 the programme has run online and in 2021-2022 tutoring will continue online with an option for a small number of in person visits by tutors where this is possible.

We have placed our tutors for the 2021-22 Academic Year  and we will open applications for schools who would like our tutors to work with them in the Autumn Term and will promote this in our monthly Outreach Newsletter and  on our social media channels.
