Do you have professional experience in coding and computing? Could you support young people with learning how to code?

Are you passionate about equipping the next generation with the skills and strategies needed to succeed?

About us: GT Scholars is a social enterprise that tackles educational inequality by giving ambitious young people the support, skills and strategies they need to achieve aspirations.

We believe that all young people are gifted and talented, regardless of their background. We run workshops, courses and a year long programme for young people aged 11-16. We’re looking for professionals who can deliver impactful workshops to build our scholar’s abilities and confidence in a range of topics.

What makes us different? There are many organisations that offer programmes to improve the life chances of young people. However, our programmes use a unique 3:1 model which means that we’re able to sustainably use our profits to provide additional places on our programmes, to young people from low income homes. 

Our mission is to empower and develop the next generation of leaders and change-makers and we’re looking for workshop facilitators that are passionate about making a difference in young people’s lives!
