Our Team

The Springboard Team is made up of volunteers and paid staff. Most of our volunteers support our programme of one-to-one tuition in schools. Others work with the central support functions in the areas of fundraising and administration.

Each school literacy centre has a specialist Centre Manager who is a member of the Springboard staff team. They are supported by a Literacy Intervention Tutor and/or a Literacy Tutor who is on our full-time volunteer programme.  Our schools are supported by a central staff team based in our London office:
