Click Connect Learn: Meet the grantees
Since 2013, Nesta and the Cabinet Office have been working together to increase the availability of volunteer-led tutoring within schools, in order to improve the educational attainment of disadvantaged pupils.
According to the Education Endowment Foundation, one to one tutoring can accelerate learning by approximately five months. However, private tutoring is expensive, making it inaccessible to many disadvantaged students.
In order to explore how digital technology could work to make volunteer tutoring more accessible to disadvantaged students, Nesta and the Office for Civil Society launched the Click Connect Learn fund.
The fund supports volunteer-led tutoring organisations to create or scale models in which digital technology is used to deliver tutoring to students.
We’ve announced three organisations who will receive grants up to £150,000 to model, implement and evaluate their work.
