Tutor Trust mentioned in letter to Evening Standard from Robert Halfon MP - 7th August 2020 Robert Halfon, MP for Harlow and Chair of the House of Commons Education Select Committee, last week referenced Tutor Trust in a letter to the Evening Standard. The letter highlights the “significant difficulties” that disadvantaged and vulnerable children have faced during lockdown and offers suggestions for how to catch them up. Mr Halfon states that: “Schools can adopt the best practice from the private sector, supported by voluntary and charitable agencies, such as Action Tutoring, The Tutor Trust and MyTutor.” Over the past few months, Robert Halfon has been one of the leading voices in pushing the government to pursue a large-scale catch up programme for helping pupils across the country affected by school closures. The government’s announcement in June that it would create a National Tutoring Programme to address this in part resulted from a huge lobbying effort from education professionals and organisations, led by Robert Halfon and including Tutor Trust. We are incredibly grateful for the continued support Robert Halfon has given our charity in recent months.
