Coaching for Progress Launches New One Day Peer Tutoring Programme for Pupils of All Ages

‘High Impact, for low cost, based on extensive evidence’ – Education Endowment Fund

Coaching for Progress are delighted to be a launching a new Peer Tutoring training programme. The programme is a one day course where pupils will learn the skills to tutor, mentor and coach their peers in order to accelerate the learning of others and make better progress themselves.


Here is the feedback from yesterday’s launch with 20 Year-four and Five Pupils in North Somerset:


  • I learned a lot about listening and being respectful and I learned how to coach somebody in real life. I really enjoyed it, thanks so much.
  • It’s actually a really fun job to be a coach or a mentor as you can help other people get better and improve.
  • I learnt to use positive body language and enthusiastic words
  • I have learnt to be a good listener and role model
