Students at disadvantaged schools in Ireland are to benefit from a ground-breaking virtual tuition platform that can double learning rates. The arrangement will enable children at 28 disadvantaged schools in Ireland to make use of the award-winning Maths-Whizz tuition program in order to boost their mathematics ability.
Richard Marett, CEO of Whizz Education, said: “We are delighted to announce this partnership with SUAS, which is highly respected for its excellent work in conjunction with the Department of Education in Ireland. Our technology improves learning rates and reduces the educational burden of COVID-19. I am therefore pleased to be able to expand our activity in Ireland for the benefit of disadvantaged students.”
A spokesperson for SUAS said: “We define literacy as: the ability to read, write and use numeracy, to handle information, to express ideas and opinions, to make decisions and solve problems. Helping children to develop literacy skills gives them the tools to break generational cycles of poverty and disadvantage, hence the importance of this partnership.”
