22 January 2015

Volunteer to provide small group tuition to children from low income backgrounds and gain an accredited qualification, and a possible interview with PwC.

Did you know that 1 in 3 disadvantaged children leave school with only basic qualifications? Team Up is a charity whose mission is to improve social mobility through their Rising Leader Programme. They have now teamed up with PwC and the University of Westminster, to offer exceptional students the opportunity to learn a range of leadership and tutoring skills and provide small group tuition to children from low income backgrounds. You will gain an accredited qualification, and in some cases be fast-tracked to an interview with PwC.

By joining the programme, you will be able to undertake a range of employability sessions and PwC led-events. You will also gain a place at a PwC assessment centre at Easter, with a view to joining their internship or placement programme.

  • on course for a 2.1 degree or above in any subject and UCAS tariff* as indicated below (or equivalent) or
  • be on course for a 1st class degree in any subject and 240 UCAS tariff* (or equivalent)

*from up to three A Levels (excluding General Studies) or equivalent, taken in the same academic year and achieved at first sitting.
