How does it work?

There's 3 steps to connecting your students to highly qualified tutors to maximise their outcomes.

1
Match

Request a tutor for a student or a small group of students. Add some information about what they're struggling with, or looking to achieve, and our dedicated tutor team will match your students with the perfect tutor.

2
Communicate

A clear and open line of communication with your tutor through Sherpa allows teachers to update tutors on what students have found particularly difficult, and may need to spend more time focusing on.

3 Achieve

The series of lessons takes place through our online classroom in 45 minute slots. Here, the tutor provides support on difficult topics, boost confidence and help your students achieve their potential.

What is the National Tutoring Programme?

The National Tutoring Programme is a government initiative designed to support schools across the UK by providing subsidised high-quality tuition to students through approved Tuition Partners. Schools can work directly with approved Tuition Partners (such as us!) to support their students.

The Pillars of Our Programme

Sherpa's school partnership programme is based around core values which ensure the best possible results for your students.

  • Focus

    Clear communication between teacher and tutor allows teachers to keep the tutor up--to-date on problem areas and request additional support on particular topics. This allows tailored tutoring which supports the teacher in the curriculum.

  • Relationships

    Students are guaranteed the same tutor for a block, allowing them to get to know one another and identify areas that require additional support.

  • Group Size

    Small groups allow personalised feedback and individual support. Available group sizes range from 1:1 to 1:3 tuition.

  • Frequency

    More frequent, shorter sessions have been proven to have a significantly higher impact than less frequent, longer sessions. We encourage schools to utilise shorter, more frequent sessions.

  • Scheduling

    Where possible, we encourage schools to schedule sessions during the school day, as this is proven to result in significantly higher attendance and focus.

  • Measurement

    Our tutors provide a short written report of a student's progress within each session. This results in a system where your team can see the topics covered alongside each student's progress for accountability and tracking.

Qualified and DBS-Checked Tutors Only

All of Sherpa's tutors either have a wealth of experience, or have QTS. We personally interview each and every tutor, and only about 1 in 10 applications is accepted.
