Do you have work for tutors in my area?

We are working across all regions of the UK and also often place tutors with online work where face to face work is unavailable. You can view our available jobs here.

What does your recruitment process involve?

We will review your submitted application, invite you to interview, interview you, and then collect all your documentation and qualifications required to make your file with us compliant and ready to work. 

How long does it take from when I apply to when I will start tutoring?

We aim to move all candidates through as quickly as possible and will aim to interview you within 2 days of applying and have your application completed within 1 week of passing interview. In most cases, the speed that a candidate passes our recruitment process is determined by how quickly they book their interview and return all references and documentation. We have had a candidate ready to work the same day before! 

When do I need to be available for tutoring?

The majority of our tuition is delivered during the school day, with some after-school tuition. A very small portion of our tuition is delivered at weekends. You can still apply if you are only available after school / on weekends provided you are aware this will limit the work that can be offered to you. 

When can I start working with you once I have interviewed and provided all documents?

Our Referrals Team will get in contact via phone or email as soon as a suitable placement is found that matches your availability, skillset, and readiness to travel. 

Will I be paid for the time taken to do any training with you?

We provide all of our high quality training free of charge but beyond this do not compensate tutors for the training that we offer.

I am not available until X date in the future. Is it still worth me putting in an application now, or should I wait?

If you have the time and availability to complete our Recruitment process we would encourage you to apply as soon as possible. Your application can be paused and resumed at a later time once it has been completed.

What is the usual duration of a tuition session?

Sessions generally run between 1-2 hours, with some instances of 3 or 4 hour sessions being offered where this session duration meets the child or young person's needs. 

Can I tutor with you alongside my current tutoring / teaching work?

Yes, many of our tutors work with us alongside other work and life commitments. This being said, the more availability you offer us the more work we are likely to be able to offer you. 

How does your mission to improve the alternative provision landscape impact how you work with tutors?

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.

What reporting is required?

After every session we ask you to complete a report on that session. 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. 

What support do you provide compared to other tutoring companies?

Behind each of our tutors is our Support Team of SEND Support Specialists, who will regularly check-in, provide advice and guidance, and answer any questions you may have. Our systems are set up to reduce the administrative load and our Referrals Team take extra care when placing tutors to ensure that each placement matches their skillset. 

What do I need to be able to work with you?
  • 2 years of teaching experience
  • A teaching qualification (in some areas we can only accept QTS).
  • 2x references, including your most recent employer and covering 3 years of your work history.
  • An Enhanced DBS
  • A L2 Safeguarding Certificate
  • A Prevent Duty Certificate
What additional benefits do tutors at Targeted Provision receive?

In addition to the support that we provide, we also invest in our tutors. We run community events for our tutors, produce our own bespoke training, and give each of our tutors unlimited access to the full Tes CPD suite. 

I have lived and worked abroad, can I go straight into working with you?

We are excited to work with tutors from all walks of life. If you have recently lived and worked abroad and meet our other requirements all that we will require are police checks from the other countries you have been working in. If you do not have these, we have partnered with an organisation that can help you obtain these checks. 

Are your tutors self-employed?

Our tutors are engaged as 'Workers' meaning that for the duration of your placement you will be employed by Targeted Provision and paid via PAYE.

Can you guarantee me work?

We are unable to guarantee our tutors work, but the more availability and readiness to travel you can offer us the more likely it is that we will be able to fill your schedule. 

Can I get an Enhanced DBS with you?

We have partnered with a company to whom we can refer you to obtain an Enhanced DBS at a cost set by our partner company. 

How many hours per week of work will I receive with you?

Our young people generally require a high number of hours per week of support. Beyond this, how much work we can provide will be dependent on how well your availability, skillset, and willingness to travel matches the young people being sent to us by the schools and local authorities in your area. 

Where does tuition take place?

Tuition takes place across a range of environments. Most commonly, tuition is delivered in the home or online, but can also take place in care homes, community settings, and schools. 

How far do I have to travel for tutoring?

We generally will ask tutors to travel up to 45 minutes for tuition, but if you are willing to travel more or less than this you can just let us know. 

Will I have contact with parents/carers if I have questions for them?

We will put you in contact with the most appropriate person (often parents/carers) for arranging tuition and to address any questions you may have that they can answer.

How much do you pay for tuition?

We offer between £25 - £35 per hour for tuiton, with the exact rate depending on if it is face to face or online, the level of preparation required, and the travel time involved.

Are tutors paid for planning, preparation, and reporting time?

We do not directly pay for planning, preparation, or reporting time but these will be taken into account in the rate offered for each given placement. 

Do tutors have to prepare and pay for their own resources?

We do not directly pay for resources and resource preparation but this will be taken into account in the rate offered for each given placement.

Are tutors paid for travel to their tuition?

We do not directly pay for travel / travel time but this will be taken into account in the rate offered for each given placement.

Do I need to submit invoices to be paid?

Tutors are engaged as 'workers', meaning they are employed for the duration of their employment. You will be paid automatically at the beginning of every month with tax covered by PAYE, so there is no need to submit invoices to be paid.
