'Almost 80% of pupils in England who don't achieve A*-C grade in GCSE Maths/English fail to attain this mark during their resits!' This year at TA 27/65 YP who signed up for accredited Childcare/Financial Capability courses were rejected due to failing core subjects. When questioning why they didn't re-sit, 25 mentioned lack of support! This is especially rampant in disadvantaged places where 'just 1/3 disadvantaged students hit the GCSE pass target, compared to 60% of their better off peers.'
Champion Club will be an out of hours support group for YP who need to re-sit core GCSEs. It will be open on Sundays & Monday/Thursday evenings beginning from Jan-June '19. It will be free, ensuring equal opportunities for all. YP will have the necessary support in order to study and revise. There will be computers, textbooks & resources for YP to access. We'll have trained volunteer mentors, and an experienced tutor on-site. The Club will be a place where YP feel like champions not failures.
