Partnership Spotlight: Get Further and Activate Learning

In 2022, Get Further began working with Activate Learning to deliver an innovative tuition programme to students retaking their GCSE maths at Reading College and University Centre. This academic year, we have expanded our partnership, offering tailored, small-group tuition to nearly 200 students working towards GCSE English or maths qualifications across Bracknell and Wokingham College, City of Oxford College and Reading College.

Get Further exists to ensure all students have access to the right support to help them secure the gateway English and maths qualifications they need to unlock opportunities for higher level study, and go on to thrive in the workplace. Our mission aligns closely with Activate Learning’s own mission: to transform lives by empowering every learner to reach their full potential and to provide talent for businesses. 

This shared vision has fostered a strong partnership focused on building the confidence and skills of students by matching them with highly-qualified tutors who support them outside of the classroom.

We recently caught up with James Clark, Director of English and Maths at Activate Learning, and Alexander Fyfe, Lead Practitioner, to find out more about how the programme is going and how they’ve found collaborating with Get Further. Find out what they had to say below:

We are currently taking on new partners for the 2024/25 academic year, offering a range of innovative tuition programmes for GCSE and Functional Skills students, as well as training and resources for FE English and maths teachers.
