The Pimlico Connection: tutoring and classroom assistants

Pimlico tutor and student

The Pimlico Connection is a peer-tutoring scheme which has been running at Imperial since 1975 and sees current students work as a tutors in schools for approximately 17 weeks between the start of November end the end of March. The scheme places a strong emphasis on inspiring students in Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths (STEM) subjects. It also serves to raise aspirations by providing students with a positive role model for STEM subjects and higher education in general.

All of our students have been trained for their role and have undergone the appropriate DBS criminal record checks.
