Literacy Tutoring Scheme

Literacy Tutors are BCU undergraduate students working with children and young people from a local school. Over the course of 12 weeks, our student tutors spend time with pupils aged 4-11, to practice reading and develop their comprehension skills.

On average, each Tutor works with ten pupils at a school, spending 20-30 minutes with each learner per week. All Tutors are enhanced DBS checked and are provided with comprehensive training and staff support, to ensure they can make a real difference. Tutors are encouraged to empower pupils, so that they can utilise their reading confidence to achieve independently at the end of the sessions.
