IntoUniversity Graduate Scheme
Graduate Education Worker Scheme

We’re looking for outstanding graduates who are creative, innovative, self-motivated and have a passion for the mission of our charity to deliver our widening participation programme to children and young people aged 7-18.


Applications for our January 2020 Graduate Scheme intake are now open in the following cities:







What can you expect?

Our Graduate Trainee Education Workers will have responsibility for working with their IntoUniversity Centre Leader to plan and deliver the IntoUniversity programme of Academic Support, Mentoring and FOCUS (specially-devised study weeks and days).

The starting salary is £22,000 (plus £1,200 if based in London).

We offer 25 days’ annual leave, in addition to all UK bank holidays (plus an additional 2 closure days at Christmas), as well as a range of fantastic staff rewards.

You will begin with a comprehensive and accredited training programme based in London, before going on to join our successful nationwide team.

The role will be fast-paced and challenging. Each day you will be contributing directly to the success of the charity and transforming the fortunes of young people from disadvantaged backgrounds.

Who are we looking for?

You will need to have some paid or voluntary experience working with children and young people, be ambitious to progress within our charity, have excellent written and verbal communication skills, and have passion and enthusiasm for the mission of our charity.

These are entry posts for individuals who have graduated in the last 5 years, ideally for people seeking to gain a broad range of experience in the charity and education sectors. We seek to provide future career opportunities for our employees and as a quickly expanding charity there will be clear prospects for Graduate Trainee Education Workers to seek promotion.

You will need to have a genuine passion and enthusiasm for working with young people and be up for leading a class of 30 secondary school students from the front, working with small teams of children and providing occasional one-to-one support.

If you believe that all young people deserve the chance to achieve their potential regardless of their background and want to play a part in helping them succeed, then we would be delighted to hear from you.
