The Creative Tuition Team were Social Innovation Programme winners
By Emma Boomfield, Jessica Slater, Mia Forster, Alice Lang, and Ed Polley
Creative Tuition Collective were lucky enough to feature in the Spring 2021 Bristol Hub and Burges-Salmon LLP research project. It was a fantastic experience that explored two projects:
Project 1 consisted of collecting both primary and secondary research looking to understand what learning and engagement platforms are used by young people within the STEM space, how many students are engaging with coding and why it's important. The group analysed the current attraction to the technology market, consumers needs and business needs for young people aged 16-25.
Project 2 sought to understand whether young people wish to learn about the STEM community through the medium of an online magazine. Research was conducted on what student/university science magazines exists presently, including analysis of what they look like, their structure and which of these elements are most attractive to students.
Recommendations from both projects will go on to inform further work and opportunities Creative Tuition wish to provide. Keep an eye out for these in the coming year, we will keep you informed.

Facing our Future as a Community
The Lockdown Laptop and Internet Access Project
Creative Tuition Collective are joining forces with Digilocal and the Atamai Tutor centre to help in the mission to end digital exclusion across Bristol. Around 1 million children, young adults and their families across the UK do not have adequate access to a device or connectivity at home, with around 10,000 children facing exclusion in Bristol.
Digital exclusion leads to young people experiencing challenges with completing schoolwork, receiving additional educational support and other social services, all of which have been further heightened by COVID-19 lockdown. Digital exclusion does not begin and end at providing young people with suitable hardware, it also includes software, internet access and support.
We are looking to raise money to purchase second-hand laptops, hard drives and internet dongles for low income families throughout Bristol to help fight educational inequality. But we need your support.

IT'S TIME TO MOBILISE
(in the right way)
Digital exclusion is a feature of poverty and lower grade attainment. Of those students eligible for free school meals or who have been in care or adopted from care only 25% achieved grades 9-5 in GCSE English and Maths in 2019 compared to 50% of all other pupils.
Dozens of young people are having to use their mobile phones to access school work and resources for further learning. As an educational organisation who wishes to support students from low income families, it is important for us, Creative Tuition to support the push towards decreasing digital exclusion.
