OUR STORY

Get Further aims to transform the experience of students facing challenges in further education, helping them to build their skills and realise their aspirations for education and work

Get Further matches students facing challenges while studying GCSE English or maths in further education, with a first-rate tutor

We recruit talented graduates, support them with expert training, and place them in further education colleges to deliver catch-up tuition in English or maths to help students gain these key qualifications.

Students on the Get Further programme receive weekly catch-up tuition, reinforced by a bespoke post-16 curriculum, designed to address gaps in knowledge and boost confidence in their skills

Get Further also provides wraparound support to students throughout the year, to boost motivation and promote independent study. Ahead of their exams, students attend our Revision Booster – delivered by first-rate volunteer tutors.
