What is the National Tutoring Plan?
The Ministry of Education, Youth and Sports has therefore prepared a National Tutoring Plan to help mitigate the negative impact of the full-time teaching lockout due to the covid-19 pandemic. It is primarily designed for pupils at risk of school failure and, in extreme cases, dropping out of education. There has been a serious deterioration in their educational outcomes.
Does tutoring apply to our school?
The plan supports all primary, secondary schools and conservatories in the Czech Republic in the implementation of individual and group tutoring of pupils. Schools received funding according to a pre-determined coefficient that took into account the results of the Czech School Inspectorate's inspection activities. Support for tutoring runs in the first phase from 1 September to 31 December 2021 and will continue in 2022 and 2023.
Who is going to tutor my kid?
Tutoring can be led by teachers from the school or a neighbouring school, teaching assistants, students or retired teachers. Volunteers from non-profit organisations in your area can also tutor. (see the map HERE).
They then become employees of the school and are entitled to a maximum remuneration of CZK 250 per hour. The funds per pupil have been set at CZK 148–740, and the tutoring should take place mainly in person and should focus on core subjects. If, for objective reasons, it is not possible to use the funds for tutoring, the school can organise activities to support the personal and social development of pupils and their adaptation after returning to school (group activities, bonding programs, professional lectures).
Is tutoring compulsory?
Tutoring is not part of compulsory schooling and depends mainly on the arrangements with your school. Tutoring is a great opportunity that would be a shame not to take advantage of and not a scarecrow. It is normal that everyone cannot do everything perfectly right away and is not passionate about all subjects in school. Anyone can afford not to understand something, not to understand and not to know something right away. That is what the people who help are there for.
