Who we are Tutor Trust is a registered charity which aims to help tackle educational inequality in a unique way. Our mission is to 'transform lives through tutoring' by making sure every child who needs some additional academic support can access a great tutor. We operate in four city regions – Greater Manchester, Leeds, Bradford and Merseyside – and recruit and train tutors, predominantly students and graduates from local universities, in the core subjects of Maths, English and Science and place them in state schools. Our tutors are paid competitive rates and receive extensive training and ongoing support, which guarantees they provide a professional service. "Tutor Trust could move into any university town in the country and have an impact.” Sir Kevan Collins, former Chief Executive, Education Endowment Foundation In 2020 we successfully started a programme of online tutoring after school lockdowns during the COVID-19 pandemic. We became a partner of the National Tutoring Programme in November 2020.

You can hear more from some of our school partners, tutors, tutees and supporters in our anniversary video: Hear from Assistant Principal Paul Jennings of Corpus Christi Catholic College in Leeds about the difference tutoring has made in his school: Hear too from Headteacher Faik Kordemir of Holden Clough Primary School, Ashton-under-Lyne, Greater Manchester (and his pupils) about the impact of tuition: Verity Howarth, Assistant Vice Principal of Dixons Trinity Chapeltown in Leeds is enthusiastic about the progress her pupils have made: And hear from some of our stakeholders about our impact: Evidence of our impact We have amassed a wealth of positive feedback about the impact of our tuition from the schools with which we've worked. Our latest Impact Report shows the positive impact our tutors make, and we have gold-standard evidence of the benefits of our tuition following a Randomised Control Trial (RCT) by the Education Endowment Foundation (EEF) held in 2017. The impressive results of the RCT, published In November 2018, gave us solid proof of the quality and impact of our work. The headline findings revealed that pupils in the intervention group who received our tuition made an additional three months of progress in Maths compared with pupils in the control group. On average the three months of additional progress was the outcome of just 12 hours of tuition, delivered on a 1:3 tutor-to-pupil basis. The EEF has also designated us a Promising Project, meaning we’ve shown highly promising results when independently evaluated and making us one of just 18 such projects across the entire country. In August 2021 we launched in Bradford - our fourth city in the North - and in September 2021 we celebrated 10 years as a charity.
