Career Research Social Responsibility

Could you be an academic tutor for our Manchester Access Programme?

Reading Time: < 1 minute

We’re looking for PhD students who want to support the progression of talented local young people to university. This is a fantastic (and paid) opportunity to contribute to the social responsibility goals of the University whilst also further developing your one-to-one tutoring skills.

What is MAP?
The Manchester Access Programme (MAP) is the University’s flagship widening participation scheme, supporting the progression of local sixth form (Year 12) students from underrepresented backgrounds into The University of Manchester or another research intensive university.

What is a MAP Academic Tutor?

Being a MAP Academic Tutor involves supporting 1- 6 MAP students during their time on the scheme, and overseeing their completion of the academic assignment; a 1,500 word essay on a topic of their choice. The tutoring process includes two 45 minute one-to-one meetings with each student via Zoom and the marking of their draft and final assignment.

There is no requirement to be on campus, as MAP tutoring is delivered 100% remotely. 

Payment is fixed at £60 per student you tutor. These are paid in two £30 instalments.

Availability

You will need to be available through to October 2022, with a current staff contract or ongoing study at The University of Manchester.

How to apply

If you are interested in becoming a MAP Academic Tutor, then please complete the online application form. The application form takes approximately seven minutes to complete.

The application closing date is midnight on Sunday, 6 February 2022. Successful applicants will be contacted by the end of February.
