NTP FAQs

What Tute does is simple: our qualified, experienced teachers deliver live online lessons to fill gaps in the education of children and young people. We have always done this, our teachers have delivered over 60,000 online lessons to over 9,000 students in hundreds of schools.
In the NTP, Tute’s qualified teachers deliver live online lessons to groups of three students, 1:3.
Tute services hundreds of schools across the UK and ensures the safeguarding and promotion of the welfare of children by creating a safe environment in which pupils can learn and by fulfilling our statutory responsibilities to identify children who may be in need of extra help or who are suffering, or are likely to suffer, significant harm.

There is a culture of safeguarding at Tute where everyone is vigilant, can share concerns and understand that safeguarding is everyone’s responsibility. We conform to the highest safeguarding standards verified diligently by the NTP.

All staff receive Level 2 safeguarding training as well as Prevent training and training in CSE and FSM. Tute’s DSL (Vanessa Leach, MD) and Deputy DSL (Phil Eastman, Business Manager) receive Level 3 training.

Our processes and procedures are clear and robust, and we will communicate any safeguarding concerns to your DSL. We will not accept bookings without the details of your DSL or of someone else who has safeguarding responsibility.

The focus of the NTP is on supporting disadvantaged pupils, including those eligible for Pupil Premium funding. However, you will be able to decide which of your pupils will most benefit from additional support, and which type of support is more suitable.
The NTP has capped group sizes at 3 students for their subsidised provision. If you are using other funding such as your share of the £650m catch up fund or pupil premium funding, you can purchase Tute’s standard products which can accommodate groups of up to 12 students.
Tute works with all types of education establishments and in the NTP, this is primary and secondary mainstream, alternative provision settings and special schools.
Tute provides its tutoring in all regions of England.
Live and interactive training starts at recruitment, continues into induction, and remains ongoing throughout the Tute teaching career. With a firm focus on ensuring the greatest impact and best outcomes for students cycles of training, lesson observation, and appraisal address: Tute’s pedagogy, platform, assessment, safeguarding and pupil needs and outcomes.
In the NTP, Tute offers lessons in English, maths, science, humanities and MFL across Key Stages 1, 2, 3 and 4. In our usual work, we also deliver KS5 provision.
Our high expectations are communicated at job advert stage and our rigorous safer recruitment process begins with our application form – we do not accept CVs. Online interviews are followed by initial training and lesson delivery, and all pre-appointment checks (DBS etc) as defined in Part 3: KCSIE 2020 are evidenced in our SCR.
Tute only employs qualified teachers with QTS. We recruit passionate, experienced professionals to join our expert team of Tute Teachers. We are more interested in commitment and pedagogical content knowledge than in online experience but Tute provides comprehensive training that creates outstanding online teachers.
Tute works across most devices: laptops, PCs, Chromebooks, iPads and other tablets. We do not recommend accessing lessons on a mobile phone.
To join Tute lessons students need a laptop, Chromebook or iPad with internet access and a headset with a microphone. If using a tablet computer, students will need a separate keypad. The integral software keypad will obscure their view of our Learning Cloud.
