Our tuition service is currently contracted with Essex County Council and Norfolk County Council. We are also a Suffolk County Council Quality Assured provider. We receive referrals from maintained schools, academies and the Local Authority directly.
Although each education referral is assessed on the needs of the individual child, below is a list of the services that we can provide:
1:1 Tuition/Individualised Intervention:
A personalised 1:1 Education Intervention – aimed at identifying gaps in learning and working on specific academic milestones for the individual to make accelerated progress. 1:1 sessions are incredibly beneficial for targeted intervention which can be carried out in a calm and friendly environment.. All tuition sessions are centred around the individual needs of the child and our tutors always display unconditional positive regards towards the young people we support. We work collaboratively with our students other education providers to ensure that the work is comprehensive and seamless.
Tuition is a proven tool for educating children in specific subject areas as well as demonstrating clear progress for children who have fallen behind their national counterparts. Our 1:1 tuition supports the child’s other education offer/timetable and we are able to work collaboratively with other settings to ensure that the child receives a comprehensive package of support. Tuition is no longer than 3 hours per day and takes place in a community setting.
School and Outreach Support:
Early intervention – our outreach education service is an excellent form of ‘early help’. Our staff can provide education for individual children or work within small groups to educate the child/children. We can provide detailed initial assessments and recommendations for future types of education.
Home and Family Crisis intervention:
This service provides education for the child and their family or carers in their home. The type of education available could be parenting guidance, behaviour management strategies, understanding educational development and guidance on how to best educate their child. We also address life skills and independence, collaborative work within the education setting and transitional support.
Our mentoring service is an excellent intervention. We acknowledge that placements can breakdown in all education settings and sometimes a child can benefit significantly from an external adult to mentor them emotionally, behaviourally and academically. Our mentors are carefully chosen and matched to suit the individual child, we look to help and guide them to fulfil their true potential. This service can also help bridge the gap between the child, their family or carers and the existing or new educational setting. Mentors will have a clear action plan which can vary with regards to duration, frequency and the type of mentoring provided – once again acknowledging that all children are different. Mentoring is not an academic intervention and has a very different focus to tuition. Mentoring work is predominantly carried out by a youth worker with a focus on social and emotional wellbeing.

Child Sexual Exploitation, Sexualised Behaviour, Keep Safe, Sexual Abuse; Parent and Child Assessment training for foster carers etc.
