Careers at Action Tutoring

Action Tutoring is a national education charity supporting children and young people facing socio-economic disadvantage to achieve a meaningful level of academic attainment. With a view to enabling them to progress in education, employment or training. 

We do this by partnering high quality volunteer tutors with pupils to increase their subject knowledge, confidence and study skills. Evidence shows that tutoring can make a significant difference to a young person's academic achievement, and we believe the opportunity to access tutoring shouldn't be limited by family income and background.

Through our network of brilliant and committed volunteer tutors, we make the benefits of tutoring available to those that may not otherwise be able to afford it, enabling them to reach their potential.

Our vision is a world in which no child's life chances are limited by their background or circumstances.
