Why We Have Created TP Tutors

Teaching Personnel has launched a new, integrated tuition service, TP Tutors. We want to let you know why we’ve decided to turn our tutoring operations into a specialist division.  

In the last two years, Teaching Personnel has made focused tuition possible for disadvantaged pupils on an unprecedented scale through our central role in delivering the National Tutoring Programme. Every day, hundreds of thousands of children are catching up on learning lost during the pandemic with the help of our seasoned tutors.  

But sending great tutors into schools isn’t the only step to a successful catch-up scheme. In consultations, the local authorities we work with have spoken frankly about some of the issues they’ve encountered with the NTP. Some alternative provision settings have encountered difficulties getting their programmes up and running in good time, while others have struggled to keep hard-to-reach pupils engaged enough to turn up to online sessions.   

Evidence shows that focused tuition can equip pupils with five months of additional progress. After so much disruption to education, it’s critical that looked-after children can reap these benefits. But for this to happen, local authorities need to be able to take control of the many moving parts that lead to better pupil outcomes.  

Over nearly three decades, our teams have provided a suite of tuition services to schools, trusts and local authorities that help young people make provable progress. With development of our flagship tuition management platform (LEAP) now complete, we can design and deliver specialist tutoring programmes at scale, with results that you can measure.  

We have the people, the tech and the experience to help at-risk young people get their futures on track, and the time is right to take our service to local authorities. TP Tutors offers a new degree of flexibility, oversight and value for money. We hope you will consider putting us to work re-engaging your young people with their learning.
