Covid-19 and the subsequent growth of the attainment gap will hit disadvantaged young people the hardest. The National Tutoring Programme (NTP) has been launched in response. It aims to support pupils in providing a sustained response to the coronavirus pandemic and to provide a longer-term contribution to closing the attainment gap.
Now Teach are partnering with Action Tutoring and The Access Project so that you can tutor this year and work where it matters, gaining experience and passing on your valuable experience to pupils that need it. This experience is the ideal preparation before training to teach. We highly recommend volunteering.
How you can get involved?
Express an interest in teaching with Now Teach
Our advisors are available to discuss your options in gaining secondary school experience.
Action Tutoring is a charity supporting these pupils to progress academically. It engages volunteers as tutors to provide tailored support to help these young people overcome the obstacles they’re facing. Volunteers do not need any previous experience; the charity provides the required training and the tutoring workbooks.
The commitment for volunteers is small, just an hour a week for 8-10 weeks and from September tutoring will be able to take place both in person in schools (if social distancing restrictions allow) and via an online platform. Opportunities available in English and maths at both primary and secondary level.
Academic support, like this, will be needed by pupils more than ever before to help make up for the time lost.
You can make a difference to the lives of children.
