Who are we?
The Professional Tutoring Partnership brings together a lead organisation, Real Group, with three specialist teacher professional bodies and two charities: Patoss, The Dyslexia Guild, British Dyslexia Association and the Helen Arkell Dyslexia Charity. The partnership’s strength lies in our combined experience alongside the highly-qualified teacher membership of professional bodies and Real Group’s background in school liaison and service delivery. Together, our partnership provides extensive experience of working with schools and supporting education settings.
Our inclusive tutoring model targets all children and young people and will improve engagement and the application of metacognitive strategies in the classroom.
We look forward to working in partnership.
