The Tutor Trust is a registered charity which aims to help tackle educational inequality in a unique way.  Our mission is to 'transform lives through tutoring' by making sure every child who needs some additional academic support can access a great tutor.   

We recruit and train tutors, predominantly from local universities, in the core subjects of Maths, English and Science and place them in state schools. Tutors are paid competitive rates and receive extensive training, which guarantees they provide a professional service. Only a third of applicants make it through our rigorous tutor selection process, ensuring that Tutor Trust tutors are the highest standard. 

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, which gave us solid proof of the quality and impact of our work. We have been designated as a 'Promising Project' by EEF, meaning we’ve shown highly promising results when independently evaluated and making us one of just 16 across the entire country. 

As a result of our evaluation, we partnered with Impetus, who help charities like ours deepen their impact, to produce a detailed three-year plan.  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. 

Our organisation operates in three cities – Liverpool, Leeds and Greater Manchester. In 2020, we successfully started a programme of online tutoring after schools closed during the COVID-19 pandemic. For the 2020/21 academic year, we are preparing to offer both online and face-to-face services so we can support as many schools and pupils as we can. 

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. In 2020, we were awarded the Scaling Award by the  FEA for our Alternative Provision project, The Right Angle.
