About Get Further
Below is an overview of the projects we are supporting on the platform, their status as well status updates for projects that have been funded
Get Further is an award-winning charity in England that matches students from disadvantaged backgrounds in Further Education colleges to top tutors, to help them to achieve passing grades in key qualifications. Now, more than ever, young people should be able to access one-to-one or small group tailored support to address gaps that have emerged in their education this year and to rebuild their confidence. Sadly too often, this is out of reach for many young people in further education. Get Further exists to change this - and with the support of funders like the Credit Suisse EMEA Foundation, we have scaled our work significantly over 2020/21 in response to the Covid-19 crisis, helping 1,500 students get back on track.
Get Further exists to transform the experience of students facing challenges in further education, supporting them to achieve gateway qualifications so that they can get further in education and work.
Get Further was founded in 2018, after winning the Teach First Innovation Award – a nationwide competition to find the best new ideas to tackle education inequality. In just three years, the charity has grown from a pilot of 35 students at one college, to working with 1,500 students in 20/21 across the country.
