How much does it cost?

Tutored£180.00 (including VAT).

This includes:

  • access to your online course for 12 months
  • online support from a specialist tutor while you complete the course – typically up to 4 months

Organisations

An employer purchasing places for a number of people might opt for more tutor contact, such as a group workshop, which would incur an additional charge to cover the tutor’s time and travel expenses.

Alternatively, schools or local authorities enrolling a number of employees on a course might opt to have an in-house specialist provide tutor support. In this situation, the in-house specialist would complete the course(s) as a participant first, and take part in tutor training.

Organisations can also be eligible for discounts on multiple purchases – If you’d like to explore options, please get in touch.

Testimonials

Feedback from our participants

I have monitored and been more observant of what has been happening in the classroom and outside, I’ve been more persistent and consistent. This has had a much bigger and positive outcome for the children I work with.

Teaching Assistant

I feel that I have a better understanding of just how much the classroom environment and resources can affect a student’s willingness and ability to learn. Furthermore, although I have always been aware that certain students do not accept praise, especially in front of their peers, I had never thought to say things like "I have enjoyed working with you/this group this lesson." and have always relied on sending praise postcards home.

Teaching Assistant

I have enjoyed and found it very useful hearing other peoples’ goals and interventions and sharing ideas and hope to continue with learning more about others’ strategies.

Learning Support Assistant (LSA)

I have learnt to always approach each lesson as if it is the first with your student. Always have a fresh start. I have learnt to control low level disruption immediately to avoid confrontation and escalating behaviour.
