As the Outreach Instructor I teach Maths and English at all levels up to GCSE, to students who have been identified as needing an academic intervention.
This can be for a huge variety of reasons, for example, the student may be struggling to keep up with the work in class; they may have become disengaged with their learning and need some extra support; or they may lack confidence and need extra encouragement. The lessons are usually 1:1 and can take place at Rise, at a student’s home, or in a public place such as a community centre.
The outreach programme of study is designed to maximise the academic progress, engagement and ultimate success of each student. It is completely flexible and individually tailored at an appropriate level, to both build confidence and challenge the student. The student is offered the same assessment opportunities as their peers, whilst having the benefit of working at their own pace. The 1:1 style of teaching means the lessons can be structured in a way which suits the learning style and abilities of the student.
The student is reviewed every six weeks as part of our usual review process to ensure the intervention is successful and ultimately to ensure they leave Rise Academy with the skills, knowledge, qualifications and inspiration to build a positive future for themselves.
