Tutorial Development Programme

Study Programmes

Ofsted inspections often find that learners struggle to progress on study programmes, particularly at Level 2, with individual learner starting points not identified and tracking of progress over time ineffective, ultimately leading to students not achieving their potential. Successful tutorials are essential for reversing this, we will work closely with you to assess strengths and weaknesses of tutorial process and develop a programme of improvement.
