TutorKnowHow is SP Tutors’ bespoke, evidence-informed tutor training app, available for exclusive use of employees of SP Tutors.
TutorKnowHow has been written by SP Tutors in collaboration with Anspear Publishing and John Catt Educational. TutorKnowHow provides tutors with mobile learning, putting tutors in control of the time, place and pace of training.
Training is divided into three key components: core, school-focused and specialist.
Core training highlights SP Tutors’ values, vision and guiding principles and provides evidence-informed training.
School-focused training guides tutors’ relationships with partner schools to ensure tutors have the information they need to make a robust start. Amongst other things, you will need to know the school’s child protection procedures, behaviour policy, where the pupils are starting, their strengths and challenges, what the aims of each block are, SEND requirements for each pupil (as appropriate) and what the pupils are currently studying so you can align your tutoring with what’s going on in the classroom.
SP Tutors’ specialist training is responsive and evolving; a blend of live and pre-recorded content builds on the excellent links from the Unity Schools Partnership, the Research Schools Network and beyond.
