At this session you will find out full details regarding the scheme to help you decide if you wish to take part.

Those who attend will be emailed an application form which allows you to indicate your suitability and motivation to be a tutor. This is a competitive process so time and effort should be given to selling yourself and proving you are an ideal candidate for the scheme.

If successful you will be invited to a ten minute interview to further evidence your suitability, answer any queries you may have and prior to this you will be asked to state your three preferences from the list of available school placements.

Those who impress at the interview and who can be matched to placements available thereafter attend a Briefing Session in December at which you are advised of your placement, provided with key documentation and learn about Child Protection and other school guidelines.
