Action Tutoring

Mission: To support young people facing socio-economic disadvantage to achieve a meaningful level of academic attainment, with a view to enabling them to go on to further education, employment or training.

Where they work: UK

Our partnership:  We have supported Action Tutoring with ongoing, unrestricted grant funding since 2013.

In the UK only around a third of pupils receiving Free School Meals leave school with 5 GCSE passes. Action Tutoring is an ambitious non-profit aiming to tackle this educational inequality by providing free tuition to pupils from socio-economically disadvantaged backgrounds. A network of volunteer tutors work with the pupils in school, increasing their subject knowledge, confidence and life skills, and ultimately helping them to achieve the critical threshold of a pass grade in English and Maths, in order to transform their post-school opportunities and life chances.
