24th May @ 7:30 am - 9:15 am
We will be back to our normal breakfast meeting for May, but a week earlier than normal on 24th May.
We will be welcoming Emma Bell from the charity, Innovations for Learning, as our guest speaker to explain how local businesses can get involved with their new project.
Innovations for Learning is launching a UK version of TutorMate, a very successful American online tutoring model, which pairs disadvantaged, struggling Year 1 readers with volunteer tutors who are working professionals. It’s the perfect employee engagement opportunity for those who want to make a direct impact on children’s lives, but find it hard to leave the office.
The TutorMate programme will target disadvantaged communities and the UK’s ‘social mobility coldspots’ for its September 2018 launch, and aligns very well with the Hastings Opportunity Area priority to improve literacy.
