Online Tuition for Looked After Children

06/04/2020 Scott

The impact of the closure of schools is expected to be keenly felt by vulnerable young people. Teaching Personnel has provided tutoring for Looked After Children on behalf of several local authorities for the last decade. Over the last 3 years, demand for this service has increased dramatically.

With the option of face-to-face tutoring no longer viable while social distancing measures are in place, tuition sessions have moved online to help provide a vital source of continuity and stability in challenging times.

Scott Kelly who is leading on the project for Teaching Personnel said “The ability to make use of the Bramble platform to quickly and easily move tuition sessions online has been incredibly beneficial. We have been able to deliver continuity of education and an element of stability for vulnerable young people”

So far, feedback for the switch to online tuition has been overwhelmingly positive, from both schools and tutors. Bramble has been easy to learn features and the online support excellent.
