The Action Tutoring 2018-19 Impact Report was launched in April 2020, in the midst of the COVID-19 pandemic. Reflecting on its contents, Action Tutoring is even more determined to weather the crisis and ensure it can continue to deliver its impactful academic support to the pupils who will so desperately need it.
Read our impact report for an overview of key achievements for the previous year:
The pandemic will hit disadvantaged young people incredibly hard, but this report shows how relevant and necessary Action Tutoring is in helping them get back to where they should be.
- Of the primary school pupils the charity supported, 74% met the expected standard in reading and 81% in maths (12% and 14% higher respectively than the national average for disadvantaged pupils).
- Of the secondary school pupils who attended ten or more Action Tutoring sessions, 61% achieved a grade 4 or above in GCSE English and 58% reached this level in GCSE maths, both exceeding the national average for disadvantaged pupils.
- All pupils supported by Action Tutoring were at risk of not achieving these standards when they began the tutoring programme.
- In 2018-19, 1,150 inspiring volunteers supported over 2,500 disadvantaged pupils in 84 schools across seven UK cities.
The Action Tutoring 2017-18 Impact Report was launched in March 2019, at an event held in Westminster and attended by Rt Hon Nick Gibb MP, where he shared his support for the charity:
“This Impact Report shows that it is possible to close the attainment gap and Action Tutoring has had huge success raising attainment. The pupils are proof that regardless of your circumstances it is possible to get crucial English and maths qualifications. Action Tutoring offers a practical, structured solution. Action Tutoring’s vision is one that I fully endorse.”
He also remarked on the “huge potential for more volunteers to use their knowledge and experience in this way to support young people”.
