What is Schools Plus?
  • University student volunteers deliver weekly tutoring sessions to pupils at local schools.
  • Each project is specific to the individual needs of the school and pupils involved. The projects have been carefully crafted, together with the teachers in the schools to tackle the needs of their pupils.
  • We recruit the tutors and provide training and ongoing support throughout.
  • Last year, 100% of teachers said that their pupils’ interest, confidence and attainment in the subject improved.
  • And 97% of tutors said volunteering with Schools Plus enhanced their university experience.
Your travel expenses to the school will be reimbursed!

Why?
  • The overall goal is to raise the academic confidence, interest and attainment of the pupils, tackling educational disadvantage in Oxford. Education in the UK is not fair- the amount that you family earns has a huge impact on the grades you achieve. We want to change this!
  • We partner with schools in Oxford where there are a high proportion of pupils on Free School Meals, who have English as a second language and have special educational needs.
  • You will tutor these pupils to help them to achieve their potential
Becoming a tutor
  • Tutor in groups once a week in a school
  • Choose your own project based on your subject preference and availability. All projects take place Monday- Friday between 8:30am- 4:00pm
  • The selection process for tutors focuses on finding students with passion, enthusiasm, and commitment.
