The East Lothian Tutoring Initiative (ELTI) was developed in rapid response to growing concerns about the widening achievement gap amongst pupils from disadvantaged backgrounds, who had been disproportionately disadvantaged as a result of COVID-related school lockdowns and associated interruptions to their learning. The initiative was informed by evidence that tutoring can substantially improve learning outcomes for children from disadvantaged backgrounds and can help to close "the poverty-related attainment gap".
