Tute has always done what the DfE now rapidly wants to implement: small group learning to plug gaps in provision. The government’s billion-pound COVID catch-up plan is intended to do just that.
£650m will be shared across primary and secondary schools and, whilst head teachers will decide how the money is used, the government expects this to be spent on small group tuition for whoever needs it. £350m is for a National Tutoring Programme to increase access to high-quality tuition for the most disadvantaged young people to prevent the gap between them and their more affluent peers widening.
What Tute does is simple: our qualified, experienced teachers deliver live online lessons to fill gaps in the education of children and young people. Schools, LAs and non-mainstream settings have commissioned almost 60,000 lessons from Tute to support their learners. Our webinar will demonstrate how Tute has partnered with these settings to make best use of their funding to improve student outcomes.
Whilst extra funding is always welcome, we know that new initiatives also mean extra work. Tute has been reducing teacher workload by supporting strategies to implement change using small group lessons online, since 2012. Hundreds of settings have placed their trust in Tute’s experience to support thousands of students on their behalf.
