36% of children from disadvantaged backgrounds leave primary school in England each year unable to read to the expected standard. Innovations for Learning (IFL) is a charity focused on using technology to close this literacy gap through a unique online reading support programme called TutorMate.
About Innovations for Learning
Innovations for Learning (IfL) is a small but growing charity, which is working to ensure that every child in the UK acquires the literacy skills they need for their to thrive and fulfil their potential. Many children fall behind with reading simply because they lack the opportunity to practise. TutorMate addresses this problem by using a bespoke internet platform to pair volunteer tutors from corporate organisations with struggling pupils. TutorMate has been proven to improve the literacy outcomes, confidence and reading enjoyment of young children from disadvantaged backgrounds.
Our model is to partner with local and national businesses which recruit their own employees as volunteer readers and provide funding for the programme. TutorMate pairs struggling children (5- to 7-year-olds) with adult volunteers who use a bespoke internet platform and a voice connection to link – from their workplace or home – to a dedicated classroom laptop for 30 minutes a week, during the school day, over an entire academic year. Up to ten children in each Year 1 or Year 2 class participate, giving the programme a reach and scale that no school is able to achieve with parent or community volunteers.
