About you
Our Graduate Scheme is highly competitive and we’re looking for applicants who are passionate about working with disadvantaged young people and have the commitment and drive to help us change their lives. We are looking for people who are excited about supporting young people in a variety of ways – whether leading whole-class workshops for Secondary students, working with small groups of Primary students or providing one-to-one support.

If you’re excited about working with children and young people of all ages, then our Graduate Scheme can help you build the skills you need to become a leader in the field.

Are you someone who has a positive outlook on work and life? We need people to be aspirational role models to our young people.

Are you someone who is hard working and has the commitment to see things through? Sometimes our Graduate Scheme can be tough, but it’s always incredibly rewarding for both you and our young people. Providing a consistent adult presence in their lives is a crucial part of our programme of support.

Are you someone who is imaginative and likes to use creativity in your work? We need people who can make learning come alive for our young people.

Are you someone who is good at relating to people? We need people who can connect with our students and provide pastoral as well as academic support.

Are you someone who wants to see a change take place in the world? We work to transform the landscape of Higher Education in the UK and we want people with the vision and drive to help us make that a reality.


To be eligible for our graduate scheme:

  • you'll have completed (or are predicted to complete) an undergraduate degree to a 2.1 or higher within the past five years (we'll also consider candidates who have achieved a 2.2 within the past five years if they have successfully completed a PGCE).
  • you'll have achieved a grade C or higher in GCSE Maths and English (or equivalent).
  • you'll have some previous experience (voluntary or paid) of working with children or young people.

Still at university?

If you’re in the final year of your undergraduate degree, you can apply to our Graduate Scheme with your predicted degree classification. If you’re not yet in your final year, there are still lots of ways you can get involved with IntoUniversity. We’re always looking out for volunteers to act as inspirational role models for our young people. You could become a volunteer at Academic Support, act as a mentor to one of our young people or join our Ambassador Scheme and help spread the word about IntoUniversity on your campus.
