About The RendezvousOne to One Learning with Volunteer Tutors is a key part of our work at The Rendezvous. Last year 30 tutors helped 34 young people pass Functional Skills Maths or English exams and since we started in 2014, we have helped over 100 young people do the same. We are now developing the service in Yeovil where we intend to be up and running from January 2021, thanks to funding from Somerset Community Foundation.
Giving your time as a Volunteer Tutor means giving practical support to a young person whose missed out at school, helping them gain their Level 1 or 2 Functional Skills English and Maths Qualifications.
Young people need these qualifications to move on and into apprenticeships, employment or back into education. They gain hugely in confidence throughout the process and can start thinking about their next steps in life.
