Working with referrers

Our Track Record: First Class Tailored Solutions have established loyal and long term partnerships with many referrers. Our tutors have outstanding track records of success and we hold detailed performance reviews on the quality and results of their tutoring.


Recruitment: At First Class Tailored Solutions all our staff are subject to an enhanced DBS check and we adhere to the "Safer Recruitment" guidelines. Tutors are selected based upon their educational qualifications and experience but also on their level of commitment and agreement with our ethos.


Continuity: We monitor the tuition quality to help ensure results are achieved. We are not an employment agency which places tutors and moves on.

Support: We support both referrers and tutors from the beginning to the end of a tuition programme recognising that tutors as well as schools need support and guidance in challenging situations.


We design and deliver mainstream one-to-one tutoring programmes for Key Stages 1–5 that boost exam performance and ensure that your learners receive the educational support they need, saving the school time and money in the process.

We have a very flexible approach and work in partnership with each referrer, managing our involvement to support the specific needs of each referral. These could include:

  • lessons in the classroom or off-site

  • one hour a week or an extended programme

  • one-to-one or small groups

  • during or after the school day

  • the supply of a tutor to support a referrers own interventions

  • management of a short term, full time education plan for a particular young person

  • support during busy periods such as exam time

  • intensive accelerator courses during the school holidays


We can tailor a tuition programme to suit referrer’s requirements; just let us know what they are and we will design a programme for you.


To find out more about our mainstream tuition services for referrers, please call our Offices (see below). You may have learners with additional needs and require specialist provision. First Class Tailored Solutions is proud to work with a team of specialists who are experienced and qualified to teach children and young people with additional educational needs. Our highly skilled tutors work in partnership with referrers, to deliver tailor-made tuition programmes for every requirement. Our provision covers:

  • Looked after children and unaccompanied minors: we work with several virtual schools and LAC teams and have extensive experience of providing tutors equipped with the skills and qualifications to teach looked after children in the care system

  • Inclusion and alternative provision: our tutors have experience working one-to-one with excluded children and those at risk of exclusion

  • Behaviour support: our tutors work with children in mainstream schools and PRUs who have behavioral difficulties.

  • Special educational needs: our tutors use traditional and innovative techniques to work right across the spectrum of need, teaching children with minor learning difficulties through to those with more challenging psychological barriers to learning.

  • Medical or physical needs: our tuition programmes complement personal healthcare provision to support children and young people with special needs and physical disabilities.

  • Ensuring success: In all aspects of the curriculum our tutors seek to maintain the conditions most likely to facilitate learning. We use a full range of teaching methodologies and resources including online activities as well as course books and specially designed practical, written and oral activities, to suit the individual tutee. We can deliver lessons exactly as specified by school staff or can plan and deliver independently if this is what is required.
