The Tutoring in Schools programme places Ulster University students in any primary, secondary or special needs school across Northern Ireland and participation from regional colleges is also welcome.
It provides your school with a student to work alongside your colleagues and pupils on any project you propose. Feedback received from both schools and students following placements has confirmed that this has proved to be a positive and rewarding experience.
The scheme runs in the second semester, normally from February to April, and requires students to spend either 32 hours or 50 hours in school, depending on whether they take TiS as an assessed module or as an additional university sponsored programme.
In either case, their time at school is usually based around half a day or a whole day per week (pending on students University timetabling commitments).
Students are cleared through the AccessNI process before they start their placement and their travelling expenses are covered by the University; schools are not required to make any financial contribution.
