Our mission means that we approach our tutors with respect and always understand them as compassionate and skilled professionals. To make the difference for our young people, we take additional care when matching tutors with young people they are well-placed to support, and we take their thoughts and opinions seriously; we take better care of our children and young people by taking better care of our tutors.
In addition, we ensure that every tutor is fully supported in their role; we lead the industry in providing a support network built to strengthen the relationships between tutor and families.
After every session, we ask you to complete a report on that session so that we can monitor the child’s progress. This also helps us to track your hours and ensure you are paid promptly each month. At the end of each placement, we will also ask you to complete a conclusive report for the child or young person you have been supporting. Please note that reports are completed online.
Supporting our tutors, we have a dedicated team of SEND Support Specialists who conduct regular check-ins, provide advice and guidance, and answer any questions that you may have. Our streamlined systems are set up to reduce the administrative load and our Referrals Team meticulously matches tutors with placements that align with their skillsets.
