Katie Hilder (Head of Midlands) and Caroline Ludden (Volunteer Coordinator) from The Access Project, would like to speak to BCS members about supporting local young people in the West Midlands.
They’re looking for professionals in Birmingham, with an undergraduate degree, who would be willing to volunteer an hour a week as a tutor to support disadvantaged young people to improve their GCSE and A level grades.
Use your professional experience to put learning into real-life context by helping to inspire, motivate and raise aspirations of local young people towards further education & the world of work.
