Impacting all walks of life, transforming the way we live and work, and as we will discuss during this blog, the way we teach and learn. The Covid-19 pandemic has disrupted many industries; however, it can be argued that the Education industry has been one of those most shaken.
To some the early school closures of March 2020 feel somewhat of a distant memory but to many the long term impacts are still being felt. Students have missed out on key educational opportunities due to the pandemic; this absence of structure will have had both academic and non-academic consequences.
Most obviously the pandemic meant that many had to work and learn from home, I believe we can all agree that this was somewhat of a struggle at times. Amongst less fortunate communities, students have had severe difficulties due to the absence of technology, shining a light upon the digital divide in our society.
Whilst educators have been amazing in innovating new ways to deliver lessons and keep students engaged, it has been an impossible balancing act between opening centres for educational benefit or keeping them closed in order to protect the health of many.
With so much learning time lost, many educators have turned to tutoring intervention sessions with students. More recently, the National Tutor Programme recently announced the School-led tutoring scheme, set up to complement previous existing tutoring provisions. This programme will offer funding for tutoring sessions for pupils, with the funding covering 75% of costs for a local tutoring provision to be set up for the school.
At MAT Tutors we have highly qualified tutors who provide well-structured 1 to 1 and group sessions for students aged between 5-16, as proven well-targeted tutoring programs will aim to reduce the long-standing educational gaps that have been accentuated by the Covid-19 pandemic. Our tutors are available to provide sessions both online and in person- so no matter what uncertainties lie ahead, you can be assured that your pupils are getting the best teaching possible.

As we all settle into the new term, many schools and trusts will now be looking forward to the January
