How to become a tutor

Do you enjoy reading, writing or working with numbers? Would you like to help other adults to develop their skills? If the answer is yes, then why not become an adult literacy or numeracy tutor?

Being a tutor can be a very rewarding experience, and there are several different routes to becoming a tutor, depending on the qualifications and experience you bring and the area you would like to work in.

Tutors can work on a paid or voluntary basis and are located in a whole host of settings across the city including community centres, libraries, colleges and workplaces. A tutor may support individual learners, in small groups or work with other tutors in a variety of settings and times.

Our current advice to anyone looking to volunteer would be to contact learning providers direct themselves - you can use the learning provider search facility on this website to find ones which may be close to you or of particular interest.
