Volunteering opportunity: tutoring local school children

CoachBright are looking for University of Liverpool students to work with school pupils from low-income backgrounds to help them improve their grades, confidence and access to university.

As only 17% of children on free school meals go to university compared to 96% of private school children, CoachBright helps those who need it most.

Join CoachBright now to help make education fairer!

The commitment is just one hour per week for 12 weeks. You’ll receive full training to prepare you to coach/tutor, and will be paired with one or two pupils to work together in an academic subject of your choice.

During school closures, all of the programmes will be online. When schools reopen and it is safe to do so, you will resume face to face programmes in partner schools.

By volunteering with CoachBright, you will:

  • Gain transferable skills in leadership, communication and relationship building.
  • Gain experience in education and working with young people
  • Get a formal student leadership accreditation to show for it
  • Be given a reference and help you with your future steps!

If you’d like to get involved then complete the short online application form – it only takes 5 minutes!

The deadline for applying is Friday 12th February
