Who we were

We were the Professional Tutoring Partnership and provided specialist in person tuition in schools and online tuition for schools up until 31st July 2021.

Teachers, schools and parents did a heroic job in 2020. Our partnership launched in November 2020 as a response to the call for nationally organised high quality tutoring to help children catch up.

The Professional Tutoring Partnership brought together a lead organisation, Real Group, with three specialist teacher professional bodies and two charities: Patoss, The Dyslexia Guild, British Dyslexia Association and Helen Arkell Dyslexia Charity and Dyslexia Action Training.

Our tutors were specially trained to teach children with literacy and numeracy difficulties. The tutoring delivered through our partnership was for all children.

We matched the school up with a tutor and then the tutors worked directly with teachers to plan and deliver the tuition that children needed to make more progress with their learning.

We decided to evaluate the effectiveness of our programme and you can find out more about the success of our programme here.
