improvement in student learning as a result of the programme, as perceived by school staff

Veränderung der schulischen Leistungen und Perspektiven

Schools involved in the qualitative interviews were positive about the tuition, keen to work with the Tutor Trust again, and largely confident that the tuition was beneficial for their pupils. All teaching staff and senior leaders interviewed believed that there was a need for more affordable, high quality tuition. School staff who we spoke to believed the quality of tutors was generally high and that, the quality of tutors greatly influenced the impact of the programme.

Evaluierung der Aktivität

Sonstige (nicht kategorisierbar)
The evaluation used a quasi-experimental design, which enabled a comparison to be made between participating pupils and other pupils who were similar in terms of their demographic and socioeconomic characteristics. A weakness of this design is that it does not take into account the unobservable characteristics of pupils, such as their motivation or the quality of the leadership in their schools. As a result, the findings are less secure than findings from randomised controlled trials. The qualitative fieldwork undertaken was based on the views of 13 senior leaders; 7 classroom teachers; 21 Year 6 pupils and 16 Year 7 pupils who had received tutoring; and 10 tutors.
