Are you an inspiring workshop leader? Are you able to deliver captivating workshops that motivate young people to achieve their best? Are you passionate about equipping the next generation with the skills and strategies needed to succeed?

About us: GT Scholars is a charitable 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.

What do we do? 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 charitable organisations and social enterprises offering programmes to improve the life chances of young people.
