Partnership Spotlight: Get Further and Newham College

This year, we partnered with Newham College for the fourth year running to support students resitting GCSE English and maths or working towards a Functional Skills Qualification with small-group tuition.

Since 2020, we are proud to have matched over 450 students at the college to top tutors to receive tailored support. We have worked closely with Newham College’s English and maths team to create a programme that meets the needs of students and staff, and have achieved fantastic outcomes as a result. In 2023, pass rates for students who attended six or more Get Further tuition sessions were 63% higher than the national average for GCSE English and an impressive 173% higher for GCSE maths.

We recently caught up with Shukrah (BTEC Health and Social Care and GCSE maths student), Mubin Ahmed (Assistant Director) and Simon Drane (Vice Principal) to find out more about their experiences of the Get Further programme. Find out what they had to say below:
