Schools are currently facing cutbacks, one big loss seen in the last several years has been to teaching assistants. Since 2022, it is estimated that teaching assistants have been cut by up to 66%. Consequently, many children are now deprived of the fundamental classroom assistance they require to thrive academically. Due to the diverse nature of individual learning styles, certain students struggle to excel within a traditional classroom environment. The loss of the one-to-one support has been noticed. By offering tuition on a one-to-one basis, we are able to create diverse, innovative, engaging and unique lessons to each student we work with. Allowing them to have the one-to-one support that is no longer available with TA’s. Our tutors not only teach, but we also work as mentors, providing a safe space for our students to bring their concerns about their education, future or anything they feel we can help and/or advise them on. With our program of tuition and mental wellbeing groups to help lay the foundations for our students to build a future career in STEM sector, or just help with build an understanding of principles that are required daily.
Who is Creative Tuition?
Creative tuition is a non-profit organisation who wants to inspire young people into enjoying and pursuing STEM subjects and jobs. With science and maths being fundamental in some of the highest ranking and prestigious job roles in modern day society. Evidence shows that less than 30% of university students studying a STEM subject are from a marginalised background and less than 11% are from disadvantaged socioeconomic backgrounds. This under representation is exactly what CTC wants to rectify and to do this we must start in schools, before students choose their GCSE’s. We currently offer and run a 3-year tuition and mental wellbeing project with pupils in year 9 (12 to 13).
Our Mission and Vision
We have made it our mission to build confidence in young people, through providing them with a safe, nurturing and inclusive learning environment, and it is our vision to create a world in which a child's social mobility and access to a good education is not limited by the circumstances in which they are born.
Everyone who works at Creative Tuition gets to be part of a close team who share ideas with one another and learn different techniques from one another. We have regular team get together and out tutors have end of term meetings to discuss how to move forward for the following term. CTC offers a 3-hour training session for all volunteers before tutoring begins and provides tutors with the opportunity to further training on request during supervisions with our tutor manager Jasmin Webb. We also provide enhance DBS checks for every successful applicant.
