Our partnership with The Access Project supports high-potential, under-resourced students to consider top universities. Queen’s has three partner schools in Darwen (Lancashire) and Workington and Whitehaven (Cumbria). Current Queen’s undergraduates, postgraduates and staff members can help these students raise their attainment and aspirations by becoming volunteer tutors.

As a volunteer tutor, you will be matched with a young person taking your subject specialism at GCSE or A Level, and you will commit one hour per week to delivering tutorials online. You will work one-to-one with your student, which means that you will get to know their ambitions and act as a positive role model. Tutors also receive support from The Access Project to tailor their sessions to the student’s individual needs, including access to teaching resources and tutorial planning materials. 

Being a tutor with The Access Project enhances your CV and allows you to develop key communication, mentoring and planning skills alongside valuable tutoring experience.

You can find out more and apply to become a tutor on The Access Project’s website. Please direct any questions to schools.liaison@queens.ox.ac.uk
