We want a world where income doesn’t affect education. So, we’re on a mission to use the power of tutoring to smash the barriers in learning and enable every child to succeed. We are on the lookout for a Programme Officer to join us on this exciting journey!
About Tutors United
We are an award-winning and rapidly evolving social enterprise, delivering confidence-boosting, attainment-raising group tutorials to some of Planet Earth’s coolest primary school pupils. We are committed to bringing the benefits of tutoring to every child, ensuring their socio-economic background doesn’t hinder how much they can achieve in life.
We do this by hiring and training brilliant university students to deliver after school group tutorials in core subjects with a specially devised curriculum, designed by expert teachers. We are the affordable option for parents and funders who want to see fantastic results for primary school children from low-income households and have a brilliant Programme Officer position available for an ambitious, dedicated, and proactive individual!
The Programme Officer will be responsible for the coordination and overall management of our programmes, which we are now scaling to reach nearly 1,000 pupils per year nationwide. This will involve managing relationships with tutors, parents and clients as well as collecting qualitative and quantitative data to help measure the impact and build the success of the programme.
This role is of crucial importance to Tutors United, as the Programme Officer will lead on the delivery and evaluation of a number of programmes, manage relationships with parents, tutors and clients; and contribute to the development of our flagship Tutoring Young Residents programme. You will also work closely with our programmes team to ensure the programmes achieve their intended outcomes.
We are looking for an individual who is enthusiastic about education and has strong stakeholder management skills. You should be able to adapt to the different forms of communication between clients, parents, tutors, and funders and have strong presentation skills. You will need to have brilliant project management skills and be comfortable working with data and using it to make informed decisions.
If you enjoy engaging your creative side, have exceptional people-skills and want to engage in strategy to contribute to the growth of a promising social enterprise, you will love it here!
We are eager to hear from individuals with lived experience of educational inequality who may have valuable insight or skills to contribute to our mission. Representation and diversity matter at Tutors United. Therefore, we are strongly encouraging applications from groups that are underrepresented in the sector, including men, Black, and Asian people.
