askOLA is a new way to support young people by offering a safe and secure way for them to seek out help online, whatever their issue may be.

Teachers have never been so busy.

When your child is struggling with their school work, it can feel overwhelming to find the time and the resources you need to help them. When your child needs help, askOLA.
askOLA is a new way to help your child learn by offering a safe and secure way for them to seek out help online, whatever their issue may be. With our easy-to-use website, children and their parents can get in touch with our vetted Online Learning Assistants (OLAs) who will help them to understand new concepts, answer questions, offer homework help and share mental wellbeing support strategies.
We deliver live help on-demand without the need to wait for an appointment. Our OLAs provide help with English, maths, science and wellbeing for students aged 11-16.
Our OLAs are screened through our comprehensive vetting and safeguarding procedures, so you can rest assured that young people are in safe hands. They won’t be asked to communicate using cameras or microphones, and all conversations are recorded for monitoring purposes.Read more
The partners are collaborating to address a national and international need to provide academic and pastoral mentoring to students when outside of school, and to support learning and wellbeing recovery during the pandemic.
The aim is to help give more capacity to schools to better support their community, and to give time back to teachers by reducing their workload.
