Coronavirus crisis – impact on our community
As our students and staff are having to move to remote working, our students are facing multiple challenges:
- Some of our students don’t have access to a laptop or smartphone to use for their work. We must provide these students with a device so they can continue their learning
- Many of our students don’t have Wi-Fi so may need to pay extra for additional mobile data. We need to support our learners with this additional cost
- In class, our tutors can support 10 students at the same time. Working remotely reduces these ratios and means that our staff have to spend far longer giving students 1 to 1 support. We need tutors and advisors to provide additional one-to-one support for our students
- At ELATT we always have a hardship fund available for our students, who experience poverty. This is even more vital during the coronavirus crisis. We need to increase our hardship funds to support vulnerable learners
How you can support us and our vulnerable students:
- A £10 donation can buy internet data for our students to continue their learning from home
- A £30 donation will allow us to get an urgent essential food package to someone in crisis
- A £50 donation can pay for a 1 to 1 session for with a teacher for a student in need of additional support to catch up and continue learning
