To All Oxbridge Graduates,

Search for Oxbridge Mentoring Scheme Tutors

Tutor Profile (Application Form) 2014 TEMPLATEI would like to introduce Insight Education, an educational advice service that runs the Oxbridge Mentoring Scheme (OMS) – a programme to academically stretch students to reach their potential.

Since start-up in 2006, we have repeatedly proven the success of the OMS in preparing mostly state school, minority ethnic and disadvantaged students for Oxbridge in under 12 months. Given the 52% average success rate amongst students who attended Oxbridge interviews between 2006 and 2013 (the average success rate for Oxbridge applicants is 21%), we now wish to expand the success of the scheme abroad. More detail is available on our website and further background information is attached to this letter.

Insight Education is about making a difference; we are dedicated to making a positive and lasting impact on the lives of students through education. We see the potential in students and academically stretch them towards achieving their goals. The skills, work ethic and resilience that we foster provide students with the building blocks for their own successful careers.

As an Oxbridge graduate, it is likely that your passion for the subject(s) you read extends beyond your university years. I hope that the objectives of the OMS are enough to convince you to put your passion, academic excellence and Oxbridge experience to use for the benefit of future Oxbridge candidates by applying to become a tutor with us. The OMS is wonderfully flexible and by joining our network, you join others who are in postgraduate study, or who are full time working professionals who seek extra fulfilling work or graduates looking to secure employment.

If you fall into the latter category, with youth unemployment being at an all time high in the UK (23%) and across Europe (up to 58%), there is every reason to get involved in our work whilst job hunting. Insight Education can help you develop or “top-up” your workplace skills by offering opportunities to undertake public speaking, client management, workshop facilitation, research and monitoring and evaluation activities in carrying out OMS tutoring assignments – all the while receiving remuneration for your efforts!

I hope I have further convinced you to sign up. An application form (with pay rates) is available here for your submission. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact Insight Education. I very much hope to welcome your involvement on the Oxbridge Mentoring Scheme.

Yours sincerely,

Joyce Connell
