Peer tutors are young people who help other young people to learn. On this course Peer Tutors are trained and supported to take on this role and form an essential part of the learning team.

Peer Tutors can support primary to secondary transition by running activities with local primary schools or can support mainstream and extra curricular activity in their own school, while some even support older young people.

Research shows that as well as having an impact on the young people they support, Peer Tutors also see an improvement in their own achievement. Whether for primary or secondary age students, the outcome is always a rise in standards and student achievement.

What Participants Say

"Peer Tutoring is one of the most powerful things I've seen; young people helping other young people to learn. Young people can connect with other young people in a way adults can rarely do and they are fantastic role models for others."

UFA National Manager

What's in the course?

This Peer Tutor training programme asks the young people involved to reflect on their own experiences of learning in different settings and challenges them to use this understanding to effectively help others to learn. The course places great emphasis on the importance of positive relationships for learning, how people learn in different ways and how to respond as a Peer Tutor to different scenarios which could arise. It is an interactive programme with lots of collaborative, team building activities.


Peer Tutors have:

  • Improved attitudes towards school
  • Improved attainment
  • Increased self confidence
  • Improved communications skills
  • A greater interest in getting involved in leadership roles in school and beyond

Other people working with Peer Tutors look up to them and see them as positive role models. A large number of young people aspire to take up leadership roles themselves as a result.
