The Learning Communities Project
The Volunteer Tutor Organisation (VTO) Learning Hub network is a key service in supporting children living in poverty and affected by the poverty related attainment gap. Following Covid, the highly impactful Hubs had to be suspended. The project aims to run 28 Hubs (continuing with 14, reinstating 9 that have been suspended since Covid and adding 5 new Hubs), improving academic attainment, confidence, self-esteem, engagement and motivation to learn.
