Ideas to support bright disadvantaged pupils

    TalentEd offers high-ability Year 10 students from low income areas a year-long programme of weekly small group (1:6) sessions. Our qualified, often retired, teachers and inspirational role models improve GCSE grades and academic and career options. TalentEd enables these expert teachers to use their qualifications and experience to give hundreds of bright young people from low income backgrounds personalised support.

    TalentEd is a growing education charity, that provides specialised support to help disadvantaged pupils reach their potential, and we are currently hoping to expand our programme to primary schools where we will support the students develop key life skills.

    We'd appreciate your help improving the support we provide for our bright students from low income backgrounds, so please take a few minutes to support TalentEd by sharing your thoughts on a year-long programme of weekly small group sessions for KS2 students.

    Some questions to consider:

    1) What year group would most benefit from weekly after-school support?
    2) What kind of work would you complete with this group if you had the opportunity to work with them weekly?
    3) What skills do you think Year 6 students are missing when they leave for KS3?

    More info can be found on our website.
