Job Description/Duties

Get Further is the first charity dedicated to providing catch-up tuition to students facing challenges in further education.   

We’re recruiting talented graduates to deliver our fully-resourced, innovative tuition programme to students in colleges who have fallen behind in English and maths. As a Get Further Graduate Tutor, you will have a direct impact on the life chances of students – helping them to improve their skills and achieve key qualifications that open doors for future study and work.  

Without GCSE English and maths, young people are more likely to drop out of education and are locked out of many university courses, apprenticeships and key professions for life. In the fallout of Covid-19, now more than ever, young people who miss out on these crucial qualifications need extra support to get their education back on track.  

Having a tutor to provide tailored support and rebuild confidence can help students close gaps in their education – but too often, this is out of reach for young people from disadvantaged backgrounds studying in further education. Apply now to become a Graduate Tutor and help more young people GET FURTHER – so that this moment doesn’t hold them back for the rest of their lives.
