How ClassCover is helping close the education gap in partnership with The Smith Family

In late 2020, ClassCover approached iconic Australian charity, The Smith Family with an idea to connect relief teachers seeking additional employment with disadvantaged children who had fallen far behind in literacy and numeracy. In what is believed to be a national first, the two organisations partnered to provide 6000 hours of catch-up learning for these children. 

Over the course of 6 months, ClassCover curated the teacher team, developed the curriculum, and pre and post-assessed the students for The Smith Family’s Catch-Up Learning Programme. The results were astounding! 

We are proud to have been a part of the program as are our team of 65 tutors we selected from our large pool of casual relief teachers who are using the ClassCover platform to connect with schools for work.
