CoachBright is a mobility organisation that exists to help young people from disadvantaged backgrounds become more independent and resilient so they can lead the lives they want.
NOTE: This provider offers tutoring online and in-person in certain areas. Enquire below to find out whether in-person tuition is available in your area.
How many pupils and schools can we work with?
950 pupils in 53 schools. We would expect to work with a minimum of 20 pupils per school.
Who are our tutors?
Trained university students and recent graduates who will tutor to the school’s curriculum. All have DBS checks and safeguarding trained.
How do we recruit our tutors?
Tutors must meet eligibility of having worked to a high level in their subject (either degree, A/B at A‑level or A*/A at GCSE).
They apply by filling out an application form. Then, attend an assessed training day. Tutors all agree to our safer recruitment policy and must pass a DBS.
How do we train our tutors?
Initial tutor training is a day long focussed on understanding our mission of working with disadvantaged pupils and making social mobility a reality, session planning, how to build relationships with pupils and safeguarding.
We run ongoing CPD through subject-specific groups and open drop-ins to plan sessions with the CoachBright team.
How will we communicate with you?
Each school has an allocated CoachBright staff member who will support in identifying pupils, fixing dates for the programme and quality assuring sessions.
Throughout, schools input onto our online system topics for pupils to focus on and can see and provide feedback on how each individual session is going.
How will we keep track of pupil progress?
We collect attainment data before and after the programme to assess how CoachBright pupils do compared to those not on the programme in their tutored subject.
Throughout the programme, we collect pupil, tutor and teacher feedback.
All our information is shared with the school weekly and we provide an end-of-programme report.
