This part of the site has been designed specifically for educators who tutor young people as part of their professional duties.
Tutoring tends to be a relatively unexamined element of what we do in schools, but it is critical to the growth and wellbeing of our young people. If we dedicate the same time and energy to being excellent tutors as we do to our subject-specific teaching, we can have a huge impact on the young people in our care.
Here, you’ll find a whole host of resources designed to support your work. These will include:
Audio and video clips, promoting best practice
Ideas and resources for running successful tutorial activities
Links to other sites and materials which you can use, at your convenience as CPD.
