• Running after-school clubs and social action projects.

What you will get:

• The opportunity to tackle educational inequality and inspire a generation of young people.

• First-hand experience of the education sector in the UK.

• A creative and dynamic environment helping you develop leadership skills and potential.

• The opportunity to drive, shape and deliver social change for on issues which are important to you.

• A structured training and careers programme to help you design your dream career path.
