Localities and Case Managers

First Class Tailored Solutions has an ever-expanding geographical coverage managed by our team of nine Case Managers. The Case Managers work with parents/carers and additionally liaise with other professionals who may be working with a particular learner. Case Managers will carry out a home visit having received a referral, organise a bespoke timetable and carefully select tutors to match the needs and personality of the young person, They will also attend meetings and/or submit reports and feedback on progress to date and any other issues to be considered in offering further support to a young person and their families. The Case Managers lie at the heart of each case and provide a gold standard service to all stakeholders.
