Tutor Support

TutorEd is a collaborative project between the SEIC and the University of Edinburgh, providing tutoring to support attainment of senior phase pupils.

This programme of support recognises the significant barriers and challenges some young people face and provides additional academic support to help them to thrive. TutorEd aims to:

  • Increase pupil confidence and enjoyment in (tutored) subject area
  • Build positive role model relationship between tutor and tutee with opportunity for wider discussion about higher education
  • Improve academic performance and attainment for young people

TutorEd works alongside the QMU tutoring initiative in place in East and Midlothian. TutorEd is available in a number of schools in Borders, Edinburgh City and Fife.
