Kip McGrath has proudly been selected as one of only four providers to partner with the NSW Government on its newly funded state-wide school tutoring program. The program, which was announced in June, is designed to support students who fell behind due to COVID disruptions. Kip McGrath was awarded the tender based on its stronghold position as Australia's largest provider of professional tutoring for primary school students and for its higher proportion of qualified teachers employed as professional tutors.
While Kip McGrath has a well-known global footprint, its local presence across NSW includes 52 centres readily able to support schools and students with quality face to face lessons. Under this program lessons are available to students at school, in centre or online from the comfort of home Kip McGrath’s purpose-built tutoring platform. The flexible modes of delivery enable students to build a consistent relationship with the same tutor every week and make it easier for students to commit to their enhanced learning support programme.
Chief Commercial Officer, Scott Hillard, explains the positive impact of the partnership on students and schools alike;
We're proud to be able to work in partnership with classroom teachers to provide students who most need learning support, the individualised attention they require. Our unique tuition method – proven over the past 47 years – provides student with 1 on 1 support whilst also building their confidence and capability to work independently in a larger classroom environment.
Every student that partners with Kip McGrath through the NSW school tutoring initiative will be assessed individually to identify their current strengths, as well as any learning gaps they have. Every student is then given an individualised learning programme with a tailored curriculum, specific to their needs.
We communicate directly with classroom teachers, providing them with regular updates on the progress made towards the student’s learning goal. Our service compliments the outstanding work done by NSW schools under very challenging circumstances.
