The LSE Widening Participation team has run a tutoring programme across London schools/colleges for several years. In 2023/24, for the fourth year, we are collaborating with Team Up, an education charity, which uses tuition, delivered by inspirational role models, to enable pupils from low income backgrounds to meaningfully increase their academic attainment, in order to improve the choices open to them.
In Winter Term, LSE Tutors will travel to one of our London partner schools, to provide in-person small group tutoring, under the supervision of teachers. Our two partner schools are located in either the Borough of Westminster or the Borough of Barking and Dagenham.

LSE Tutors will have the opportunity to raise students’ attainment and confidence, whilst encouraging them to consider higher education when they leave secondary school or college.
