Access Project Information Session
Could you enhance students’ learning by sharing your knowledge? The Access Project is a charity who provide ‘tutors’ for students to help progress their learning and knowledge. Tutors from the business community are required to have qualifications in a field of expertise that matches the students learning, aspirations and plans for the future. There are currently 127 volunteer tutors in Birmingham who offer a minimum of 20 hours tutoring per academic year. The students will travel to your place of business for a one hour session.
This is great for professionals in our District who want to give back to the community and have a positive effect on students’ studies and learning. You don’t have to tutor a student in you area of business if your qualification is in a different field. As an example there are tutors in the finance sector who tutor in biology, as this is
what they studied at university
The process for getting involved is simple and the Access Project stay in touch to ensure the partnership is successful.
The process for getting involved is as follows:
- A potential tutor expresses an interest in volunteer tutor opportunities to Access Project.
- Potential tutor completes an online form which is reviewed by Access Project
- Once the application is approved, the school (who already work with Access Project) match the tutor to a student.

- Access Project complete all relevant DBS checks for potential tutors.
