We’re absolutely thrilled to announce that MyTutor has been chosen to deliver tutoring to schools as an approved National Tutoring Programme (NTP) Tuition Partner for the second year running. Schools can now access high-quality online tutoring from us, subsidised by 70%.
MyTutor is one of the approved Tuition Partners who will work with schools to deliver curriculum-relevant tutoring, and reach as many disadvantaged pupils as possible.
This brilliant news means that we’ll have the opportunity to directly support more than 30,000 students at 1000+ secondary schools, helping them to catch up on lost learning and continue to make strong academic progress.
This past year has posed more challenges to the world of education, as Covid-19 restrictions have limited students’ face-to-face contact with teachers and peers, while lockdowns and rising case numbers meant that many students fell behind even further.
The focus on tutoring is rooted in extensive evidence demonstrating the potential of one-to-one and small-group tuition as a cost-effective way to support pupils who are falling behind in their learning – with the Teaching and Learning Toolkit indicating it can boost progress by up to +5 months.
2021 marks the first time the attainment gap for disadvantaged pupils has widened since 2007, making clear the need for immediate action. Last year we delivered 150,000 lessons to 30,000 pupils, through small group (3:1) and 1:1 tuition via our innovative online platform.
Commenting on the announcement, James Grant, Co-Founder of MyTutor, said:
“We’re delighted to have been selected as an approved Tuition Partner to help disadvantaged students catch up as part of the National Tutoring Programme. At MyTutor, we’re fiercely dedicated to delivering life-changing online tuition that creates better academic outcomes for students from less privileged backgrounds.
“Being part of the programme will enable us to provide much-needed support to over 1000 secondary schools and tens of thousands of students, helping them to catch up on lost learning amid the ongoing disruption to school life caused by COVID-19.”
“As talented undergraduates with recent exam experience, our 15,000+ trained tutors are uniquely placed to build up students’ confidence, complement the incredible work going on in classrooms up and down the country, and develop positive, nurturing relationships with students.
“This represents a fantastic opportunity to build on the success of the Education Endowment Foundation’s Online Tutoring Pilot, which we participated in over the summer, and which found that 9 in 10 students felt more confident in their schoolwork following tuition. We can’t wait to start making a difference to those who need it most.”
