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?
You will be assigned a specialist Tuition Manager who is contactable during school hours. Throughout each programme Tuition Managers will meet you (in-school or online) to discuss progress. As well as regular updates, our programme management portal ‘LEAP‘ will play a key role in communication, evaluation and reporting.
How will we keep track of pupil progress?
Before tuition begins, we will use an online assessment tool to uncover learning gaps for each pupil. After every tuition session, tutors will provide you with feedback followed by an end of block assessment. All of this information is visible at any time on our programme management portal LEAP.
