Providing tuition services since 2007, our success in this area is down to close engagement with school leaders to understand pupil needs, tutor compatibility and ongoing feedback on effectiveness.

How do we train our tutors?
Tutors are required to complete “The Tutor Toolkit”, a CPD Accredited training course developed by Best Practice Network. Comprised of six modules the course covers a range of topics and offers practical tools for delivering high-impact tuition. Every tutor will also have completed Level 2 or above safeguarding training.
How will we communicate with you?
Schools are assigned a Tuition Manager who is contactable during school hours. Throughout each programme, Tuition Managers will meet with you (in-school or online) to discuss progress. As well as regular communication between class teachers and our tutors, our LEAP portal will also play a key role in communication and reporting.
How will we keep track of pupil progress?
The assessment tool used by our tutors will uncover existing learning gaps prior to the start of tuition. The results will be used to build personalised and focused tuition programmes. Assessment is on-going, with feedback returned after each session, culminating in an end of programme assessment to measure pupil progress.
