Frequently Asked Questions

How many hours can a pupil be offered through NTP?

Tuition is delivered in 15 hour packages but there is no limit to the number of tutoring packages that can be offered to the same pupil. A pupil's progress may have been impacted in more than one subject area. Schools are best placed to make these decisions.

How do I choose Learning Hive as my delivery partner?

Simply head to: https://www.find-tuition-partner.service.gov.uk/, add your postcode, select the subjects you'd like support with then choose Learning Hive from the delivery partners list.

What are the costs to my school for NTP provision?

NTP provision is 60% government funded so your school only needs to cover the remaining 40% of costs.

Does Learning Hive provide student impact reports?

Yes. Our tutors run baseline assessments in their first sessions with students to get an understanding of their current abilities. From here, we plan and deliver bespoke sessions, closely monitoring progression and reporting the impact of our targeted interventions to your school.

What extra workload will be placed on my teaching staff?

Your staff need to simply identify the students you wish to provide tuition for and we'll do the rest. It's helpful to gain some insight from teaching staff into the student's areas for development which will be discussed in the planning stage of our collaboration.

Are Learning Hive representatives DBS checked and Safeguarding trained?

Yes! All Learning Hive staff hold an enhanced DBS and are Level 2 Safeguarding trained.
