MAP Academic Tutors Needed – applications open until 3 Feb

MAP 2020 – Academic Tutors Needed!
The Manchester Access Programme is now recruiting academic members of staff or PhD students for academic tutors for 2020.

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

What is MAP?
MAP is the 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.

To hear from a current MAP tutor, please watch this video.

Availability
Please note that you will need to have a current contract with the University of Manchester to cover the dates set out above. 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.

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