The National Tutoring Programme

Teaching Personnel is a National Tutoring Programme Tuition Partner. Here you can find out the details of how we will staff and manage our tuition programmes.

Who are we?

Teaching Personnel has been at the forefront of supporting schools, local authorities and pupils throughout England for over 24 years. We work with over 5,000 schools annually through our network of 260 operations staff in local offices throughout the country. Through the supply of education professionals and services we work within mainstream settings, SEND environments and alternative provisions.  Working across all age groups, school phases and subjects, we deploy a flexible workforce for a variety of roles including 1:1 and small group tuition - helping many thousands of disadvantaged children reach their full academic potential every year.

How do we train our tutors?

Comprised of six modules the course covers a range of topics and offers practical tools for delivering high-impact tuition. Every tutor will also have completed Level 2 or above safeguarding training.

How will we communicate with you?

You will be assigned a specialist Tuition Manager who is contactable during school hours. Throughout each programme Tuition Managers will meet you (in-school or online) to discuss progress. As well as regular updates, our programme management portal ‘LEAP‘ will play a key role in communication, evaluation and reporting. 

How will we keep track of pupil progress?

Before tuition begins, we will use an online assessment tool to uncover learning gaps for each pupil. After every tuition session, tutors will provide you with feedback followed by an end of block assessment. All of this information is visible at any time on our programme management portal LEAP.

What schools say about us

"At Perranporth School, through working with Teaching Personnel, we've found the National Tutoring Programme to be a highly beneficial and effective way of supporting our pupils to both catch up and recover lost learning due to the Covid-19 school closures. A number of our most vulnerable pupils are now receiving targeted teaching sessions which are bespoke to their individual needs and barriers to learning. The setup process was very easy and due to the government subsidy, the programme is also incredible value. The NTP is making a positive impact on our pupils and really helping us to get their learning back on track."
