Study Support
Out of School Hours Learning

What is Study Support?

Study support (out of school hours learning) covers a wide range of learning activities outside normal lesson time in which young people participate voluntarily. This includes activities such as homework and study clubs, sport and outdoor activities, the creative arts, community volunteering, mentoring, opportunities to pursue particular interests (e.g. ICT and languages) and learning about learning (i.e. study and thinking skills).  Study support covers a number of learning activities which take place out of school hours. Participation is voluntarily.  Study support includes the Playing for Success initiative.

The Study Support Website is a new interactive resource to help you set up, run, and find out more about study support.  
This new site offers information on all aspects of study support, such as guidance on establishing and managing study support activities, good practice, and how study support can bring real benefits in terms of improving attainment, behaviour and attendance for those who participate.
