We are an EEF ‘Promising Project’ with a very strong track record of high-quality tutoring and school partnerships.
Since 2012, we have delivered over 100,000 hours of tutoring across Greater Manchester, Leeds and Liverpool.
We have 9 qualified teachers on the staff of Tutor Trust, including two former Headteachers.
We ask that at least 75% of pupils nominated for tutoring are ‘disadvantaged’, namely Pupil Premium, Looked After, in Alternative Provision or at risk of exclusion.
The charity serves the whole of Greater Manchester, Leeds/Bradford and the Merseyside city-region, both in person and online.
How many pupils and schools can we work with?
4,500 pupils in approximately 200 schools.
NOTE: This provider offers tutoring online and in-person in certain areas. Enquire below to find out whether in-person tuition is available in your area.
Who are our tutors?
Students/graduates, retired teachers – anyone passionate about fairness in education who meets our high standards. Tutors are paid for their work.
How do we recruit our tutors?
We have a rigorous and competitive process, which includes an interview and role play. Only 25% of applicants succeed – they must meet competencies criteria, show deep subject knowledge and provide two references.
Most tutors are Russell Group university students, recruited through engagement on campus and online.
All tutors are DBS-checked.
How do we train our tutors?
Tutors receive 10 hours of training, covering pupil engagement; curriculum and exam specifications; lesson planning; safeguarding; etc. We provide ongoing support through CPD opportunities.
Tutors’ sessions and lesson plans are monitored by senior staff with teaching experience; this ensures tutor quality and provides feedback for them to improve with.
How will we communicate with you?
Tutoring is supervised by our School Coordinators team in each city. Each school will be introduced to a School Coordinator from their first contact and will have regular communication with them as the assignments progress.
Schools must identify a Tuition Leader to be the main point of contact at school.
How will we keep track of pupil progress?
We collect anonymised baseline data before tutoring starts, which enables us to monitor the impact of our tutoring once complete.
After every session, the tutor completes a register and provides written feedback to the school and Tutor Trust. We maintain constant communication between the school, tutors and Tutor Trust staff.
