All government schools have been briefed by DET about the small group tutoring program we will be running in 2021 for students whose education was particularly interrupted during remote learning. This is in addition to the plans we have already formed to enable all of our students to make the progress expected between December 2019 and December 2021.
In the first couple of weeks of December we will be reviewing all student’s learning this year and identifying children who will be offered additional tutor support. This will focus on the amount of progress made in 2020 compared to the expectation and may therefore include children who are working at higher levels but have missed out on elements of their learning this year.
Parents of students who can be included in this program will be contacted in the last couple of weeks of term. This tutoring program is a very significant commitment by the Department of Education and Training to support the learning of all young Victorians.
