Cognition Education appointed to provide expertise to the Department for Education’s National Tutoring Programme

Recently Cognition Education announced its appointment as one of three new delivery partners for the Department for Education’s National Tutoring Programme.

Developed as part of the Government’s ambitious COVID recovery plan, the National Tutoring Programme is supporting pupils across England to get back on track following the disruption caused by the pandemic. Over two million courses have been started through the National Tutoring Programme, including almost 1.8 million so far during the 2021-22 academic year.

Cognition’s contribution will be to oversee the recruitment of well-qualified people to work as academic mentors and deploy them to schools that are most in need of additional in-class tutoring resource.

Cognition Learning Group CEO, Tina Lucas says “We are extremely pleased to have been awarded the contract to support the National Tutoring Programme. As a company dedicated to transforming the lives of children and young people through learning, we are proud to be selected to support schools with access to high quality Academic Mentors as they seek to address the challenges faced by many of our most disadvantaged pupils as a result of pandemic disruptions to their education.”

The National Tutoring Programme is the newest venture for Cognition Education in the UK.
