Does integrating additional learning and support and coaching into lessons improve attendance and outcomes?

Principal focus of the project

The aim of this project was how to overcome the perceived stigma - attached by learners - of seeking support from Additional Learning Support (ALS).

Areas of learning
What is this about and what were the main findings?

The approach involved collaborative working between the teacher, ALS and instructor (for coaching and VESPA sessions) using MS Teams breakout rooms as a regular part of online lessons, and so perceived by students as being 'normal'. The project reported that this embedded approach had been very successful as learners who may not have previously accessed ALS were confidently asking for extra feedback.
