About you
Our Graduate Scheme is highly competitive and we’re looking for applicants who are passionate about working with children and young people of all ages 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.


We are looking for people who can demonstrate our values: Talent, Quality, Compassion, Aspiration and Teamwork.


Talent: At IntoUniversity, we value and recognise the talent of every person.

Are you someone who enjoys motivating others by reinforcing their self-belief? We need staff who will believe in our young people and support them to succeed. You will also be ambitious to enhance your own professional development.


Quality: At IntoUniversity, we complete everything to the highest possible standard

Are you someone who is hard working and has the commitment to see things through? We need people who take pride in their work and complete tasks to the best of their abilities. You will have a growth mind-set, embracing challenges and reflecting on how to develop and improve. You will also have the ability to plan, prioritise tasks and meet deadlines.


Compassion: At IntoUniversity, we practise pastoral, long-term care

Are you someone who is kind and supportive of others? We need team members who can motivate and interact positively with children and young people. Providing a consistent adult presence in their lives is a crucial part of our programme of support. Alongside support with learning, you will also be attuned to the pastoral needs of our students.


Aspiration: At IntoUniversity, we behave aspirationally and positively

Are you someone who has a positive outlook? We need staff to be aspirational role models to our young people and make learning come alive. You will also need excellent communication skills to interact positively and professionally with our families, partner schools, visitors, volunteers and staff.


Teamwork: At IntoUniversity, we promote teamwork and togetherness

Are you someone who enjoys working as part of a team to achieve shared goals? 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. You will be kind and supportive of colleagues, students and stakeholders. You will also be committed to building an inclusive culture in which everyone is valued for the unique people they are.


In order to be eligible for the graduate scheme, applicants must:


  • Have completed - or are predicted to complete - an undergraduate degree to a 2.2 or higher.
  • Have completed either an undergraduate degree or postgraduate degree within the past five years.
  • Have achieved a grade C or higher in GCSE Maths and English/ achieved National 5s or Standard Grade at Credit level (grades 1-2) in Maths and English (or equivalent).
  • 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.
