The Pimlico Connection tutoring scheme
Volunteering as a Pimlico Connection tutor gives you the chance to spend time in a local primary or secondary school, where you will work to improve the academic knowledge, confidence and interest of pupils, whilst giving them an insight into university life, and acting as a role model. You will be fully trained, and will be inducted on the UK schooling system. The programme is open to current undergraduate and postgrduate Imperial students.
Tutoring takes place between November and March and for most tutors sessions are on a Wedensday afternoon. Each tutoring session lasts between one and two hours per week. You’ll also need to factor in travel time to get to the school, which could be up to 45 minutes each way. Training is provided for tutors before tutoring starts and throughout the programme. You will be reimbursed for your travel expenses.
This scheme is run in partnership between the Outreach team and the Students’ Union, so you will have access to a wealth of training opportunities, which will really boost your transferrable skills.
Applications for tutors for 2018-19 are currently closed. We will re-open applications in December 2018 for tutors to start volunteering in schools from January 2019 until March 2019.
If you have any queries or require further information about the programme please email the Outreach team.
