Research findings from the Norta Norta Individual Sponsorship Program
The Norta Norta Individual Sponsorship Program (hereafter referred to as Norta Norta) was a one-on-one tuition program which ran from 2009-2012, designed to improve the educational outcomes for Aboriginal students in Years 11 and 12. Read an extended executive summary of the program evaluation.
Norta Norta produced a number of positive findings such as improved HSC results and greater student retention. Staff and students involved in the program also reported increased student engagement, confidence, and timely completion of assessment tasks. We have summarised some of the lessons learnt from Norta Norta about effective tuition that schools may wish to consider when implementing the COVID Intensive Learning Support Program.
