The Tutor Trust is a registered charity which aims to transform one-to-one tuition and help tackle educational inequality in a unique way.  Our mission is to 'transform lives through tuition' by making sure every child who needs some additional academic support can access a great tutor.  We recruit and train bright university students as tutors in the core subjects of Maths, English and Science and place them in state schools. 

We operate by employing exceptional undergraduates from the most prestigious universities in the North.  We pay our tutors competitive rates to ensure that our beneficiaries receive a professional service.  Our tutors receive extensive training from teaching professionals to provide tuition in English, Maths and Science for students from years 5-11.  Only a third of applicants make it through our rigorous tutor selection process, which ensures that Tutor Trust tutors are not only academically able, but also have the potential to be inspiring role models to their students.

Tutor Trust could move into any university town in the country and have an impact. Sir Kevan Collins, Chief Executive, EEF

In November 2018, the Education Endowment Foundation (EEF) published the impressive results of a major independent evaluation of Tutor Trust.  This report gives us solid proof of the quality and impact of our work, and a strong foundation on which to build our work right across the Northern Powerhouse.   We have been designated as a 'Promising Project' by EEF; ‘Promising Projects’ are EEF funded projects which show highly promising results when independently evaluated, and Tutor Trust is one of just 16 across the entire country.

As a result of our impressive evaluation, The Tutor Trust has been delighted to partner with Impetus in producing a detailed three-year plan.  Impetus support the most promising charities around the UK to help deepen their impact and expand their work supporting young people from disadvantaged backgrounds.  The plan will support us with helping as many disadvantaged children and young people as possible.  Their invaluable expertise will help us get the best tuition to the pupils who need it most and help us reach even more of them.

The Tutor Trust is a multi-award winning charity. The charity has won the national prize for 'Best New Charity in Britain' at the Charity Times Awards, the 'Best Partnership' prize at the Spirit of Manchester Awards and the 'Spirit of Community' award from Yorkshire Bank. In 2019, we received the ‘The Learning Award’ at the Children and Young People Now Awards and were named “Highly Commended” for the ‘Charity of the Year Award’ at the North West Charity Awards.
