Education Support

DBET provides subsidised educational support in partnership with Mary Lorimer Tutoring to children and young people in Exeter, Mid and East Devon. The impact of Covid-19 and the disruption to learning has seen a rise in the number of children needing specific, personalised intervention support.

Since January 2021, the charity has been able to subsidise tutoring sessions for 10 separate children, who have seen enormous benefits from this additional educational support.

Mary Lorimer Tutoring is also based at the Devon Business and Education Centre. All staff are highly experienced in supporting young people, especially those with special educational needs including ADHD and dyslexia.

One parent has said "We are so grateful for this extra bit of help. Our Child is making great progress and his teachers have also acknowledged the great improvements he’s made which I believe is down to this extra hour of tutoring he’s receiving each week. We’ve also seen him grow in confidence in his own abilities which is fantastic."
