Action Tutoring & Impetus
We value the funding Impetus provides. However, their unique approach in providing management advice and pro bono consultants gives a huge amount of added value.
– Susannah Hardyman, CEO, Action Tutoring
The need: Good GCSE grades are gateway qualifications for further study and fulfilling work. Young people from disadvantaged backgrounds are 40% less likely to pass English and maths GCSE than their better-off peers.
Our charity partner: Action Tutoring works across the country providing trained volunteer tutors to support pupils from disadvantaged backgrounds to pass their GCSEs and SATs.
Our impact: Since 2014 we’ve supported Action Tutoring in creating a strong curriculum, a longer programme and new performance management processes. And it’s worked – 80% of their pupils pass their English or maths GCSE, after the equivalent of just two terms of weekly tutoring. We have also helped Action Tutoring improve school retention rates from 60% to 85% and pupil attendance from 60% to more than 75%.
