Solutions for schools and local authorities
For over 20 years, we’ve helped schools and local authorities put the right measures in place for their pupils.
Whatever your pupils’ circumstances, we’ll help them catch up.
We have supported
Achieve their targets
Find the right scheme for your learners
Our tailored tutoring programmes lift up the prospects of underachieving learners.
There is no one-size-fits-all approach to tuition. Our catch up programmes are carefully planned around your pupils’ needs. We start by finding out your pupils’ circumstances and work from there.
Solutions for pupils in school
Are your learners in school? Our Supplementary Provision (SP) package will enrich their classroom education.
SP is a tailored, comprehensive tuition programme delivered one-to-one and in small groups. Sessions complement the school curriculum and clear up areas of difficulty.
Our trained tutors address learning gaps, improve confidence and accelerate progress and attainment. Tuition is delivered at school or from the home, either in person or online.
Solutions for pupils not in school
Our Alternative Provision (AP) service caters for pupils who are not able to attend school. This may be due to behavioural, mental health, cognitive or other reasons.
Our Programme Leads develop a holistic learning programme, tailored to each pupils’ needs. Tutors work to get learners ready to return to school or a permanent education provision.
Our AP Programmes serve as an interim replacement for primary or secondary school. They include up to 5 subjects, from 5-25 hours per week for up to a full academic year.
We maintain constant communication with the LA or school. Clients can view data on learner attendance and progress in real time.
A dedicated Programme Lead oversees the full education programme and tuition delivered. They liaise with parents/carers, tutors, schools and the learner. This transparency boosts progress.
A culture of expertise
AP sessions are normally one-to-one, delivered by tutors with extensive SEN expertise.
We strictly limit SP class sizes to ensure learning remains.
All our tuition programmes start with a benchmarking assessment. We use the results to put together an Individual Learning Plan (ILP) for each learner.
Tutors keep records of each session. These feed into larger monthly reports on progress against initial benchmarks.
We also use this data to assure the quality of our SP and AP programmes. When learners fall off track, our Quality Assurance team make the appropriate interventions to put them on the right path.
A learning system that adapts to each child
Our Student and Tutor Educational Performance System (STEPS) tailors learning to every individual and makes progress trackable.
Weaving the learning journey together
In a four-way process, productive communication is a challenge in itself. STEPS makes this coordination seamless.
Syncing the classroom with the Cloud
STEPS blends in-person and digital techniques to make the learning process accountable.
From benchmarking to detailed progress monitoring, our sophisticated online platform enriches tuition sessions. Tutors, schools and AP settings can keep track of each lesson in close detail. Learners can keep up their momentum in their own time with remote access to our library of resources.
Great tutors help children make breakthroughs. STEPS ensures that those eureka moments are never lost.
Five steps to changing children’s lives
STEPS raises attainment over a series of stages.
To start the process, each child completes an assessment through our online portal.
2. Individual Learning Plan
The tutor uses the results to design a bespoke learning plan that will guide each tuition session.
3. Session reports
After each session, the tutor puts together a brief report covering engagement and attendance. These reports are visible to all parties.
4. Detailed progress reports
Every 6 weeks, the tutor reassesses the pupil to measure progress achieved to date against targets set. The tutor compiles a brief report summarising progress achieved to date and outlines the learning plan and targets for the next 6 weeks.
5. Online tuition platform
Our secure online tuition platform allows tutor and pupil(s) to see one another throughout the live remote tuition session and share learning resources. Interactive whiteboard, text editor and other interactive tools make lessons engaging and fun.
