Alternative Provision The quality of provision to date has been exceptional! 1:1 and small group tutoring has ensured that students have made accelerated learning in English/Maths and Science. The tutors have engaged students through exciting and interesting lessons. In addition, they have forged professional relationships with our students and staff. Lynda Thompson, Executive Headteacher, Trafford Medical Education Service The Tutor Trust provides tutors for students in Alternative Provision with a variety of needs. This includes students who have missed school for medical reasons, as well as those who have been permanently excluded. All of our work in Alternative Provision is built around the specific and individual needs of the young person and is focused on building a strong relationship which allows the young person to flourish academically as their confidence grows. Our tutors receive specialist training for this often challenging work. Joanne Meredith, our Director of Alternative Provision, is an ex-Headteacher of a Pupil Referral Unit. She provides Alternative Provision tutors with additional training and conducts regular quality assurance to ensure tutoring is of the highest standard. We also run CPD’s for our tutors from specialist organisations in this field, such as Frontline and Place2Be. Our work in Alternative Provision has grown substantially over the past two years and current demand is increasing.
