Reasons to become a Scholars Programme PhD Tutor

  • Support local pupils from under-represented backgrounds to access university. Each Scholars Programme placement begins with tutors accompanying their pupils on a university trip, followed by six further tutorials in their school. At the end of the programme pupils submit an assignment that is marked by their tutor.
  • Get expert training and real experience to develop your teaching and other transferable skills. The training programme consists of two full-days including sessions on tutorial pedagogy, assessment and designing a course handbook.
  • Earn £500 per placement plus an additional £100 for designing a new course, and travel expenses
  • Disseminate your research to small groups of school pupils
  • Join a nationwide community of like-minded researchers making a huge impact on university access
