To support students in catching up with any learning they may have missed due to the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic, the Victorian government has committed $250 million to place more than 4,000 tutors into schools across the state in 2021.
The Tutor Learning Initiative Webinar Series provides an opportunity to deep-dive into the initiative and better understand how you can support implementation in your school.
