Academic tutors needed for Manchester Access Programme 2020

17 Jan 2020

The Manchester Access Programme is now recruiting academic members of staff or PhD students as academic tutors for 2020

Manchester Access Programme

This is a fantastic opportunity to contribute to the social responsibility goals of our University whilst also further developing your one-to-one tutoring. 

What is MAP?

MAP is our University’s flagship widening participation scheme, supporting the progression of talented local sixth form (Year 12) students into The University of Manchester or another research intensive university. You can find out more about MAP on our website.  We are hoping to recruit approximately 640 students onto the programme this year, all of whom will have attended state school and have no history of higher education in their family. 

What is expected of a MAP Academic Tutor?

Tutors are required to support 1- 6 Year 12 students during their time on the scheme and oversee their completion of an academic assignment. The tutoring process includes two 45 minute one-to-one meetings with each student and the marking of their draft and final assignment. You will be paid £60 per student that you tutor.

Please note that you will need to have a current contract with The University of Manchester that covers April to September. We make the final payment at the end of October, once all academic assignments are complete. For this reason, please note on the application form if your contract ends before November 2020. Please also note any planned periods of extended absence that cover the dates above


If you are interested in becoming a MAP tutor, then you must complete the online application form. Applications close on Monday, 3 February 2020, and successful applicants will be contacted by mid-February.
