Event description
You are warmly invited to train as a volunteer tutor with The Access Project to support and inspire disadvantaged young people.

About this event

Important information: This is a private event for people who have registered with us via our website. Please only book to attend if you have been invited to do so.

This training event will be an online interactive training session on Zoom.

The Access Project is a nationwide charity that helps talented young people from disadvantaged backgrounds gain access to an education at one of the UK’s top universities by providing them with in-school support and personalised tuition.

Before you attend training:

1. Register: If you haven’t already done so, please complete our volunteer sign up form here.

2. Collate three ID documents for a DBS check: We’ll support you to apply for a DBS check (a criminal records check) to ensure that all volunteers are suitable to work closely with children. Prior to training we will send you instructions on how to complete the first part of the application form and we'll privately verify your ID documents on camera during the session.

3. Complete your safeguarding training online: Upon signing up as a volunteer, you’ll receive an email inviting you to complete your Child Safeguarding training online. Please follow the instructions and the link in that email. We recommend completing this before attending the training session.

During this training session, we’ll cover:

  • What to expect as a tutor
  • Tutoring techniques to help your student learn
  • How to plan your tutoring sessions
  • Teaching resources, lesson plans and worksheets
  • How we will support you while you volunteer with us

Please note as part of the DBS application process, we will also verify your documents during the session.

Please bring the 3 identification documents you will have added to your online application form with you to the training session. We will have sent full details about completing this process to you prior to training.

At least one document should be a photographic ID document (e.g. passport or driving licence) and at least one document should show your current UK address.

Who will run the training session?

What tech do I need to join the session?

  • The link will be sent to you via email the day before your session.
  • This session will be interactive so we ask that you have your webcam on.

I have accessibility needs that mean Zoom is not the best platform for me. What should I do?

  • Please contact us at to discuss your accessibility requirements so that we might make alternative arrangements that meet your needs.

I already have a DBS certificate - can I use this?

  • High quality photo or scan of your certificate (front and back)
  • One item of photographic ID (such as driving license or passport)

What documents should I bring for my DBS check?

  • Most people choose to use the following 3 documents:
