Get Further matches students facing challenges while studying GCSE English or maths in further education with a first-rate tutor.
Get Further tutors are exceptional volunteers with a teaching background, who use their teaching skills and experience to maximise impact for the students.
Students on the Get Further programme receive weekly tuition and mentoring and are supported by a tailor-made, high-quality post-16 English and maths curriculum and resources.
In 2018, Get Further won the Teach First Innovation Award – a nationwide competition to find the next big ideas to tackle education inequality. Later that year, Get Further launched its pilot programme for maths.
Get Further has received funding and support from the Shackleton Foundation and the Young Academy.
Work is now underway to launch an English pilot in autumn 2019.
