Who are our tutors?

All tutors are graduates. They all hold up to date DBS certificates and have undergone robust, certified Safeguarding training.

How do we recruit our tutors?

Tutors apply to our robust training programme and undergo a rigorous recruitment process which includes shortlisting to be invited for interview and an individual interview from an experienced recruitment panel. All tutors must successfully complete the full training programme to be eligible to become a tutor and work in schools.

How do we train our tutors?

Training is via online interactive live’ taught sessions with additional independent study and review of learning as well as ongoing access to all training and support materials discussion groups for peer to peer and trainer support. In addition, all tutors are allocated a personal tutor to support and advise them.

How will we communicate with you?

Our NTP lead will communicate weekly to schools via email/​Microsoft Teams and conduct visits/​online meetings for teachers and tutors where additional support and advice is needed. Partner schools will attend online information events detailing the training tutors receive; their expectations, and how to support ongoing impact and effectiveness of the programme.

How will we keep track of pupil progress?

Tutors have a baseline of pupils’ starting attainment to track against. All tutors track progress on a minimum weekly basis and review this with the school. Personal Tutor Meetings allow discussion of all aspects of the tutors’ work in schools including considering anonymised data and how to support accelerated progress.
