What we are looking for: We are always looking for passionate and enthusiastic tutors and mentors to join our team. In order to become a tutor or mentor with the GT Scholar’s programme, you will need to have strong subject knowledge and you will need to undertake a DBS check.

DBS checksWe will need to process a DBS check for all tutors and mentors but we can only do this after we have carried out reference checks.

Commitment: We require tutors and mentors to commit a minimum of one academic year to the programme. We would prefer that you let us know in advance if you are unable to do this as cancelling in the middle of the year can have a negative impact on pupil learning. We also spend a considerable amount of our funds training tutors and conducting DBS checks.

Mentoring, Tutoring or both: If you can commit to 30 weekly sessions per year, then we would love for you to become a tutor. The tutoring sessions also involve some elements of mentoring and coaching. However, we understand that some volunteers are not able to provide as much support. In which case, we would like to invite them to assist with online mentoring and to join us for the enrichment sessions which take place 6 times per year.

Availability: GT Scholars are provided with weekly after school or weekend tuition sessions during the academic year from September to June. Each tuition session is for 1 hour per week. This means you will need to be available for at least one tuition session per week.

Session times: Tuition sessions take place at weekends or on weekday afternoons/evenings.

How to become a tutor: You will need to complete the online application form and take part in a short telephone interview. Following this, we will meet with you in person at one of our GT tuition centres.

Training and support: We offer ongoing training and support to our tutors and mentors. Training

Reimbursement: Tutoring and mentoring sessions are unpaid, we are happy to reimburse transportation fees of up to £17 per day. You will need to submit a timesheet on or before the 5th of each month and reimbursement will be made on the 20th of the month.
