Study Support is almost of all of what is offered through the
Varied Menu of Activities of Extended Services and has had
the same DfEE/DfES/DCSF definition since 1996:

"Study Support is learning activity outside normal lessons which young people take part in voluntarily. Study Support is, accordingly, an inclusive term, embracing many activities – with many names and guises. Its purpose is to improve young people’s motivation, build their self-esteem and help them becomemore effective learners. Above all it aims to raise achievement."
Study Support: a national framework for Extending Learning
Opportunities (DfES 2006).

Study support attendance by children and young people has contributed to raised achievement and as such is seen as a tool for school improvement.

QiSS is part of Canterbury Christ Church University. It supports the development of quality in study support provision, recognising good practice at three different levels: emerged, established and advanced. At advanced level you would expect to see a sophisticated strategy, with a detailed programme of delivery, showing significant impact on children and young people’s outcomes.

This booklet has been produced to celebrate the recognised advanced practice in the North East.
