Get Further is a new further education not-for-profit that supports young people facing challenges in further education to improve their English and maths skills and gain key qualifications that open doors for further study and work. We do this by recruiting and training talented graduates and placing them in further education colleges to deliver our high-impact catch-up tuition programme in English or maths to students in need of extra support.

About the Role:

Get Further is an education not-for-profit with the mission to transform the experience of students facing challenges in further education, helping them to build their skills and realise their aspirations.

Without GCSE English and maths, students are drastically more likely to drop out of education and struggle to progress to university or in the workplace. We’re recruiting talented graduates to go into colleges and deliver our innovative catch-up tuition programme for students who have fallen behind in English and maths, providing them with valuable extra support that would otherwise be out of reach.

As a Get Further Graduate Tutor, you will have a direct impact on the life chances of the students that we support – helping them to improve their literacy or numeracy skills and achieve key qualifications that open doors for further study and work.

  • Ability to travel to your placement college (either in London or Cambridge)
  • Minimum C grade in GCSE English and maths
  • Minimum A-level/equivalent qualification at grade B or above in subject relevant to the subject you choose to tutor (English or maths)
  • You’ll be at least in your final year of university with a strong academic record
  • If successful, you’ll need an up-to-date DBS Check

We're looking for individuals who believe in our mission, demonstrating not only a passion for tackling educational inequality, but the skills to translate this passion into action.

  • You’ll be able to demonstrate a personal interest in education, accompanied by the drive and commitment to make a difference.
  • We’re looking for communicators. You’ll be able to clearly demonstrate that you are both attentive and adaptable and can convey information in a clear and engaging manner.
  • You’ll be able to demonstrate that you are resilient and professional – and that you will take the role seriously and consistently do your best by the students.
  • You’ll be able to demonstrate a clear level of insight and understanding into the challenges facing students today.
  • We’re looking for team players. You’ll be able to demonstrate an aptitude for building and managing relationships with your students and staff at the college.
