    The 11+, ISEB, SATs, GCSE & A-level Resource Group: How It Can Help You as a Parent, Student and Educator

    The 11+, ISEB, SATs, GCSE & A-level Resource Group: How It Can Help You as a Parent, Student and Educator

    Many parents and educators have turned to online communities for support and resources since March 2020. There are very few groups who have provided more than Agness O'Brien's.

    The 11+, ISEB, SATs, GCSE & A-level Resource Group, newly Affiliate Partners of TTA (pretty special for a Facebook group) and recently partnering with Qualified Tutor, provides a wealth of resources, live events, emotional support, helpful guidance and learning materials to over 13,000 members. Since last spring, the group has more than doubled and continues to grow every day.

    The equation is simple: if you'd like to get access to resources and support from thousands of educators, parents and specialists stretching back over 5 years, then this is the place to be. And it's all down to Agness and her wonderful team of admins and moderators.

    By signing up, you'll also immediately find a short introductory video that gives info on all the moving parts of the group, including crucially how to navigate the thousands of resources and posts. Once podcast systems have reached a point where videos can be posted in show notes, that video will be up quicker than you can say ...

    Qualified Tutor is a tutor-training organisation, with a suite of high-quality, industry-first programmes. The Level 3 Qualification for Tutors (qualifiedtutor.org/training/level-3-qualification-for-tutors/) consists of 8 weeks of online learning, interactive live sessions with peers and expert facilitation at every step of the way, and will set you apart in a crowded space.

    Our CPD-Accredited Tutor Training (qualifiedtutor.org/training/online-tutor-training-seminar/) is a 4-week foundational course in teaching and learning, and comes with a Certificate of Completion and a teaching qualification that many tutors will never have had the chance to obtain. Be the first to take the next step in tutoring.

    Love Tutoring Festival 2021 Podcast #2 - How to Run a Successful Tutoring Agency

    Love Tutoring Festival 2021 Podcast #2 - How to Run a Successful Tutoring Agency

    We brought together agency leaders and heads of tuition from 3 highly successful, but markedly different, tutoring organisations: Helen Kenworthy, Georgina Green and Harry Cobb.

    Helen Kenworthy: Founder of The Complete Works, a teaching service that creatively provides learning programmes for students of all ages
    Georgina Green: Founder of Green Tutors, STEM specialists based in Hertfordshire and training partners of Qualified Tutor
    Harry Cobb: Head of Tuition at Bonas MacFarlane, prestigious agency that mentors students and provides educational advice to parents across the globe

    From how we deal with new clients and new tutors to the process of matching the right tutors to the right students to the motivations behind why tutors join a particular agency, this conversation had it all (in the field of running an agency).

    And it beautifully tied together the many conversations that we had on the Tuesday of the Love Tutoring Festival, including the importance of values in a tutoring business and the importance of knowing your client before going into business with them.

    Love Tutoring Festival 2021 Podcast #1 - Neurodiversity and Accessibility in the Field of Learning & Living Differences

    Love Tutoring Festival 2021 Podcast #1 - Neurodiversity and Accessibility in the Field of Learning & Living Differences

    Welcome to the first of our Late Night Live Podcasts from the Love Tutoring Festival. Our Monday podcast welcomed on Nina Jackson, Amanda Cremona and Clio Tucker.

    Nina Jackson is 'the Ninja'.
    Amanda Cremona is the tutor that every student with dyslexia needs to work with.
    Clio Tucker is the student who 'failed her A-levels', and was oh so enriched by it.

    The topics discussed were varied and the conversation was aided admirably by participation from our live audience. We began with a true discussion on the advancements of accessibility in tech, followed by the impact of neurodiversity on learning, before drawing the conversation to a close with a look at the widely superfluous nature of homework and the effect it has on many students' learning.

    (And if you think your access to the Festival is OVER, then think again! You can still catch every recording to the free sessions by clicking here. And if you'd like access to our suite of 6 CPD-accredited workshops, then all you have to do is purchase the £68 ticket on our website at qualifiedtutor.org/community/love-tutoring-festival/#register and you'll get immediate access to all those recordings)

Over 8 weeks of self-paced learning, interactive live sessions with peers and expert facilitation at every step of the way, you'll set yourself apart in a crowded space.

    All You Need To Know About the 7+ Entrance Exam, with Expert Tutor Ilana King

    All You Need To Know About the 7+ Entrance Exam, with Expert Tutor Ilana King

    Ilana King is one of the few 7+ entrance specialists. With a new training course and book, Ilana has given tutors and parents the opportunity to learn and grow.

    Ilana is the Founder of Education Pathfinder, an educational consultancy business that has helped hundreds of parents plot the right path for their child. As part of her 7+ work, Ilana has recently written a book for parents who want to know more about the 7+ exam, and specifically for those parents who cannot afford a 7+ tutor. This book, The Parents’ Handbook for the 7+ Entrance Exams, can be found at amazon.co.uk/dp/B093N2CQ37.
    While the 7+ entrance route has traditionally been the remit of the more affluent families in London, Ilana is committed to making it more accessible to more parents.

    Here at Qualified Tutor, we're particularly interested in Ilana's commitment to training tutors too. If you'd like to become an effective 7+ tutor, there's only one place to look: Ilana's special training course, which can be found at educationpathfinder.co.uk/six-months-to-becoming-a-7-specialist.

    If you would like to be part of an industry-first Level 3 Qualification for Tutors, enrol now by following qualifiedtutor.org/training/level-3-qualification-for-tutors/ and be the first in a new crop of motivated, committed, qualified tutors.
