These courses are also useful for students who are struggling with the subjects they are studying at school and need more help from a personal Tutor.
Having access to your own personal Tutor means that you do not have to fight for attention with other students. Your Tutor consultations will be strictly one-to-one.
All home schooling Tutors hold a current DBS check.
All courses will be accessed via the student portal. On your portal, you will find all your course materials, resources and videos. You will also be able to access your Tutor and Admin services.
If you are studying a subject that involves examinations, details of examination centres and exam timetables can also be accessed through your portal.
Once you have accessed your course materials for your chosen subject; you will be required to complete an assignment at the end of each module and submit it to your Tutor for marking. Your Tutor will grade your work and provide you with valuable feedback.
You can email your Tutor at any time and you will also have access to a weekly Skype call with them to go over anything in particular you are struggling with or to answer any questions you may have (if you do not have Skype, we will help you set this up).
Length of course
You will work at your own pace for as long as you need. However, please bear in mind examinations can only be sat at certain times of the year and will need to be booked in advance.
All course materials needed to complete your chosen course will be supplied unless otherwise stated.
Examination fees are not included and you would be required to contact your local examination centre and make payment to them direct. We will provide you with a list of your local centres.
