School-Led Tutoring: Information for tutors

Information for individual tutors wanting to get involved in the School-Led Tuition route

Bespoke training

The Education Development Trust is delivering the training course for school-led tutors; an evidence-based, online course focusing on best practice tutoring.

Responsibility

Taking on extra duties in school to carry out tutoring sessions. Delivering these tutoring sessions is a great way to increase responsibility in the school.

Pupil support

You will be directly helping schools support their pupils, reach their potential, develop their skills, build their confidence and make a real difference.

Security

The government funding is secured until 31st August 2022, ensuring your extra role, responsibilities and potential income will be secured until this date.

Who can become a tutor?

Schools can choose from a range of staff to deliver the catch-up sessions, but they will require different levels of training based on their experience.
Eligible tuition providers include:

  • Teachers
  • Teaching assistants or staff with similar roles supporting teaching, including learning mentors
  • Initial Teacher Trainees
  • Supply teachers
  • Retired or returning teachers
  • Private individual tutors
  • Tutoring organisations

How can I get involved?

Staff with QTS can begin tutoring, along with external tutors. Some staff members will be required to successfully complete a free, online tutoring training course before they can begin delivering sessions. This course takes 11 hours and must be completed within 4-weeks.

How are the sessions delivered?

The sessions can be delivered during the school day and will be determined by the senior leaders and headteachers to ensure they are as effective as possible for the school’s pupils. They are delivered in small groups, with a recommended ratio of 1:3 (maximum of 1:6).
