Volunteer as a tutor with The Access Project to support disadvantaged young people aged 14-18 with their academic studies. 

We have partnered with nationwide education charity, The Access Project, to support disadvantaged young people aged 14-18 studying at Wood Green Academy in the West Midlands. 

The project helps young people to see university within their reach and supports them in making competitive applications and attaining the grades they need to fulfil their potential.

Students supported by The Access Project typically achieve a grade higher at GCSE and are four times more likely than their peers to progress to a top-third ranked university.

You can read about how The Access Project supported Nadia, who went on to study medicine at Imperial College London.

As an Access Project tutor, you will spend one hour a week supporting a young person to achieve the GCSE/A-level grades they deserve and to raise their aspirations towards further education and the world of work. No prior experience is necessary, as full training is provided through the autumn, with start dates throughout the autumn term.
