About the role
The Tutor Trust is an education charity rooted in tackling educational inequality in a unique way. We began life as a small pilot project in Manchester with big aspirations and a radical new idea to boost the educational opportunities for disadvantaged children and young people.
Our mission is to ‘transform lives through tutoring’ by ensuring every child who needs academic support can access a great tutor. We recruit and train bright university students as tutors in the core subjects of Maths, English and Science and place them in state schools. To date we have recruited and rigorously trained over 1,800 tutors, provided over 100,000 hours of tutoring support, and supported over 15,000 pupils (mostly on free school meals or Looked After Children). Our interventions have supported disadvantaged young people to reach their full potential and have helped them lead happier and healthier lives.
Who we are looking for
To enable us to achieve our mission and our ambitious strategy we are looking for a number of people to join our board. We are looking for people who hold or have held senior leadership roles in education, in Merseyside, West Yorkshire and /or Greater Manchester, and who understand the educational and political networks of those areas. Alongside this we seek people who have experience working with disadvantaged young people in social care, pastoral or advocacy roles.
Our board meets six times a year with a strategy away day and an annual summer reception. We expect all our trustees to attend one tutoring session as an observer every year. We expect the time commitment to be one day a month.
You will support the future development of The Tutor Trust, provide support and appropriate challenge to our senior leadership team and board and you will be an ambassador for our organisation. Alongside your experience in and around education, you will share our commitment to the values and aspirations of The Tutor Trust and be passionate about tackling educational inequality.
