Literacy Tutoring Application Form

Primary Literacy Tutor

The Literacy Tutoring scheme gives Birmingham City University undergraduate students the opportunity to work with young people to develop their reading and literacy skills in order to improve all areas of their educational development.

Aimed at raising the attainment of students, tutors will support the young people as they practice reading aloud. The learners will have been identified as needing additional support and having the potential to achieve great qualifications over the course of their educational journey.

One-to-one reading sessions are held at the school on a weekly basis and last approximately 30 minutes per student. The arrangement is for 12 weeks (excluding school holidays and absences). Tutors are encouraged to be creative and empower learners so that they can go on to read independently at the end of the process and develop their reading skills more confidently.

This is an exciting, paid opportunity to support young people, develop your employability skills and enrich your University experience.

Applications are now open for the next academic year.

To find out more information, please read the Primary Literacy Tutor job description before applying for the Literacy Tutoring scheme 2021/22.
