Diversity Programmes & Initiatives

At Targeted Provision, we understand that we have a role to play in improving representation at our company and in the region.
We are keen to hear from candidates from all backgrounds. The over 2 million vulnerable children in the UK are disproportionately constituted of minority and LGBTQIA communities, as well as people with disabilities, refugees and migrants, and people living with mental health conditions. It is integral to our mission of raising the standard of support for the UK's vulnerable learners that we engage individuals from all backgrounds so that our team can better share/relate to the experiences of our students.

Our commitment is:

  • To create an environment in which individual differences and the contributions of all team members are recognised and valued.
  • To create a working environment that promotes dignity and respect for every employee.
  • To not tolerate any form of intimidation, bullying, or harassment, and to discipline those that breach this policy.
  • To make training, development, and progression opportunities available to all staff.
  • To promote equality in the workplace, which we believe is good management practice and makes sound business sense.
  • To encourage anyone who feels they have been subject to discrimination to raise their concerns so we can apply corrective measures.
  • To encourage staff to treat everyone with dignity and respect.
  • To regularly review all our employment practices and Safer Recruitment Policies and Procedures so that fairness is always maintained.

Are there tutoring roles for niche subjects or less common teaching areas?

We have the most demand for tuition in the core subject, but do also receive occasional requests for tuition outside of these subjects.
