OUR PARTNERSHIP WITH THE 'CORONAVIRUS TUTORING INTIATIVE'
We understand our programmes may not be able to reach all the affected students in the UK. To offset this problem and ensure that every bright young mind receives the education they deserve in these difficult times, we have partnered with the Coronavirus Tutoring Initiative.
'The Coronavirus Tutoring Initiative was started in March on the same day that the UK Government announced national school closures. Whilst necessary, the closures risk increasing the disparity between those young people who can access private tutoring and those who cannot.
The initiative connects university students with young people who need free tutoring in any pre-GCSE, GCSE, or A-Level subject. Within the first week of launching, we had 3,000 university students express interest in volunteering with us and our tutor base continues to grow.'
Our donation of £984.50 has provided the means for this fantastic charity to continue partnering mentors with students who have been adversely affected by the disruption caused by Covid-19 into 2021.
