Box4Life plans free maths and english tuition

Free Maths and English

Would you be interested in free maths and english tuition and homework support for any 11-18 year olds in your family who are not doing as well in school as you would like?

(10 year olds can be included if they are in Year 6 in September.)

With our colleagues Diverse Voices, who will provide Street Dance sessions for the project, we are applying for a grant to deliver this tuition, by suitably qualified and experienced teachers, and we need to know the potential numbers.

Priority will be given to young people who are becoming de-motivated or disengaged with studying generally, or who need help in raising their aspirations about getting a job. This could include helping them to present themselves to employers, filling out application forms etc, as well as support to improve their grades.

The grant we are applying for is linked to sport, so it can ONLY be given to young people who attend Street Dance (free) or non-contact boxing sessions (£2).

The new Tuesday timetable at Cann Hall Baptist Church, Cann Hall Rd, E11 3HY:

4.00 - 5.00 pm Learning support for street dancers

5.00 - 6.00 pm Street Dance session

5.30 - 6.30 Learning support for boxers

6.30 - 8.30 Box4Life session

The 4-year project is one of 33 across London run by Sporteducate, part of the Sported Foundation and is funded and supported by the Deutsche Bank youth engagement programme Born to Be. Training by the National Resource Centre for Supplementary Education and Developing Youth Practice has already been provided. Outcomes to be measured include Attitude to Learning and Aspirations for the Future.
