Reeson Partners With The National Tutoring Programme

Ntp

Here at Reeson, we were immensely proud to be granted Tuition Partner status with The National Tutoring Programme.

The ambitious scheme was launched to support schools by providing access to high-quality tutoring – aimed to help pupils that were impacted most by the pandemic.

Evidence shows that tutoring can boost progress by up to five months. Tutoring is known to be one of the most effective tools to support learning and accelerate educational progress.

 

What is the National Tutoring Programme?

 The National Tutoring Programme is a government-funded, sector-led initiative. It is designed to make high-quality tutoring accessible to schools.

 The programme provides additional support to help pupils who have missed out the most as a result of school closures, with a focus on disadvantaged pupils whose education has been affected by this.

 As part of the wider education recovery programme, The Government has invested £1 billion in support of up to 6 million pupils.

 

Why it’s important

 Access to quality tutoring is often limited in certain areas. It’s estimated that around 80% of disadvantaged pupils currently don’t have access to quality tuition. The NTP aims to support schools in addressing this.

 To maximise the opportunities available and to support the pupils that need the most additional help, a focus on tutoring is required.

 It is our shared commitment to close the gap on lost learning. Tutoring helps build up pupils' resilience and confidence, which is truly needed after the pandemic.

 

The aims

●      Boost pupils’ attainment levels

●      Help young people achieve their full potential

●      Provide a longer-term contribution to closing the skills gap

 

Our Partnership

 Safeguarding and child protection is at the very heart of everything we do here at Reeson.

 We are delighted to have joined The National Tutoring Programme’s exceptional list of tuition partners.

 As specialist recruiters in the education sector, we know that recovery in this space is of the utmost importance.

 The NTP has a set of criteria designed to achieve accreditation. As an approved tuition partner, we have passed a set of quality, safeguarding and evaluation standards.

 Our partnership enables us to provide targeted support for pupils in a range of subjects from KS1 through to KS4 in 1:1, or small-group sessions, both online and face to face.

 This option offers additional tutoring capacity to schools, especially in regions where this is deficient.

 It also provides a high level of flexibility to schools and academy trusts without them having to use their own staff and a selection of providers who can tailor their expertise to support particular identified needs.

 

 “As we move into exam and SATs season, we are looking forward to continuing to work with our client schools across London to help raise attainment levels for those students most impacted by COVID”

 

At Reeson, we find meaningful work for hundreds of qualified Teachers, NQTs, Teaching Assistants, Cover Supervisors, HLTAs in Primary, Secondary and Special schools around London.
