- As a tutor you will earn £9.89 per hour + holiday pay. You are also able to claim for any preparation time.
- Tutors receive training throughout the year by WP staff, equipping you with the skills you need to work effectively with young people, including behaviour management, small group facilitation and lesson planning.
- Tutors work with the same pupils each week and therefore have the satisfaction of seeing pupils flourish in subjects they were struggling in, or even hated before. You will maintain a weekly placement with the same school from October - May forming meaningful relationships with your tutee(s).
- Tutoring develops many transferable skills such as: communication, initiative, adaptability, leadership, time management and commitment (all of which are attractive to employers).
- Enhance your employability and share your passion with young people most in need of your support.
Under normal circumstances, weekly from October until April / May. Optional tutoring in June, July and holidays is available.
