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.

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.

With gene therapy now available on the NHS as treatment for some forms of sight loss and therapies for other forms now at phase 3 clinical trials, we have never been closer to relegating sight loss to the history books.

Who We Are
LTSB is a social mobility charity that works with bright young people from disadvantaged backgrounds, ensuring they find meaningful, skilled careers – and that firms get positive, effective employees who can make a difference from their first day.
Our four key responsibilities are:
- Promoting opportunities to those from backgrounds that are not normally reached
- Preparing young people for the workplace, and the workplace for young people
- Providing context for their application, and stewarding the hiring process
- Pastoral care – an additional support network for the first phase of their career
We don’t just get young people jobs. We launch careers. When diverse talent is given preparation and support, they don’t just get by, they thrive – and that means more representative management which can better train and retain a more representative workforce.
