Who we are
We want a world where income doesn’t affect education. So, we’re on a mission to use to power of tutoring to smash the barriers in learning and enable every child to succeed. We are excited to announce that we are looking for additional trustees to help us make this change!
About Tutors United
Tutors United (TU) deliver confidence-boosting, attainment-raising tutorials to some of Planet Earth’s coolest primary school pupils to bring the benefits of tutoring to every child, ensuring their socio-economic background doesn’t hinder how much they can achieve in life.
We do this by employing and training inspiring university students to deliver after school small group tuition in core subjects with a specially devised curriculum, designed by expert teachers. We are the affordable option for parents, schools and Housing Associations who want to see fantastic results for primary school children from less privileged backgrounds.
Since the organisation was established in 2013, we have hired and trained over 350 university students and tutored over 1,200 low-income primary school pupils across 18 London Boroughs and three UK cities with consistent results for academic progress.
We are at an exciting point in the organisation’s development with plans for expansion and launching new services. Therefore we are looking for additional trustees to bring additional skills and expertise to the organisation!
We are looking for at least two incredible individuals who will bring passion and commitment as well as skills and experience in any of the following:
1. Experience teaching or working with schools.
This could be a direct teaching experience or wider experience working with schools – including (but not limited to) school governors, a professional body for teachers etc. We are looking for insights within the industry to grow our work with schools and teachers.
2. Charity governance experience
We would like to enhance our governance as we start to grow the organisation. Therefore, we are keen to hear from individuals who have a good understanding of Charity governance and can help TU to ensure we have the right structures and procedures which are compliant and fit for purpose.
3. Experience working with Local Authorities or Housing Associations
We partner with some of the most forward-thinking Housing Associations and want to understand the changing landscape and priorities of these bodies over the next few years. We are keen to hear from individuals who have experience working in and with these organisations and can add value to our ongoing work with the housing sector.
