Mentee Safeguarding Lead
Tim graduated from Peterhouse, Cambridge in 2017, having read Classics for 3 years. The excellent support that he received from his grammar school highlighted to him the importance of students receiving adequate support and information, so that they maximise their potential, within academia and beyond.
Tim started to work within university admissions while he was at university, and has since worked on programmes such as Target Oxbridge, as well as designing programmes of support for schools around the world. Combined with his own access initiatives, he has supported thousands of candidates through the application process, and is looking forward to applying his expertise with Insight Outreach.
A short stint in the corporate world made it clear that education was his true vocation, and Tim has been working as an education professional since 2018. He is currently training to teach in Latin and Classics at a Central London academy.
