A range of support, resources and training is available for educators, program coordinators and schools. These will be available to all educators and coordinators once they are accepted into the program.


Our Microsoft Teams channels are the point of reference for all schools participating in the Small Group Tuition program (SGT). They provide a place for professional learning, to ask questions, receive prompt replies, share ideas and collaborate with colleagues.

A dedicated Microsoft Teams channel is available as a school’s first point of contact which provides support with:

  • Schools’ queries
  • Basic reporting requirements in the Planning for Literacy and Numeracy (PLAN2) platform
