The Manchester Access Programme is currently recruiting academic members of staff and PhD students to be academic tutors for 2020.
The Manchester Access Programme (MAP) is the University’s flagship widening participation scheme for local sixth form (Year 12) students. The programme is designed to support the progression of talented students into The University of Manchester or another research intensive university. You can find out more about MAP here.
Getting involved in the programme will not only develop your tutoring skills and enhance your CV, but you’ll also be contributing to the social responsibility goals of the University. To find out more about what being a tutor is like you can hear from a current MAP tutor here.
What will be expected?
MAP Academic Tutors will be required to support between 1 and 6 Year 12 students (you can decide how many you’d like to support), and you will oversee their completion of an academic assignment. The tutoring process will include two 45-minute one-to-one meetings with each student and the marking of their draft and final assignment. You will be paid £60 per student that you tutor.
If you are interested in becoming a MAP tutor, you can complete the online application form here. Applications close on Monday 3 February.
