We have a demonstrable track record of achieving positive impact for the students and colleges we partner with:
Get Further launched in 2018, after winning the Teach First Innovation Award – a nationwide competition to find the best new ideas to tackle education inequality. Following a successful pilot programme working with 150 students, we have scaled our work significantly in 20-21 to support over 1,000 young people to get back on track after the disruption from Covid-19 to their education.
20 COLLEGES AND SIXTH FORMS
8,000 TUITION SESSIONS
With extra help from a Get Further tutor, students are more likely to gain a grade C/4 at GCSE and have greater opportunities for progression in their chosen career.
GCSE Resit Curriculum and Professional Development Programme
At Get Further, we also offer support directly to college and sixth form teachers through our research-based GCSE maths resit curriculum for further education. This curriculum has been designed specifically by expert teachers for students who are continuing to study GCSE maths in further education or sixth form, with a focus on ensuring a strong foundation in fundamental maths skills that will continue to support them in the future and beyond life at college.
The curriculum package includes:
- A scheme of work, tailored to the college’s timetable and cohort needs;
- All lesson materials (full slides, worksheets and assessments) and;
- An accompanying teacher professional development programme, with recommended strategies to support teachers to deliver the curriculum to maximum effect.
For colleges who use the curriculum, there is a demonstrable improvement in progress and attainment. During the curriculum pilot, 80% of young people improved their scores after three months of teaching – and assessment results were significantly higher for the cohort than the previous year.
