The Transition to Teaching Programme
This programme has been designed with employers to promote a new career in teaching to high-performing employees who are considering a mid to late career change. The programme targets employees with relevant degrees
who can share their knowledge and experience, and inspire the next generation.
For those with a teaching qualification: see http://www.tda.gov.uk/teachers/onetoonetuition.aspx .
The 'One to One Tuition Programme' is a Government funded initiative to help children gain more confidence and understanding, particularly in English and maths. It is highly flexible and the tutor decides when and where to give tuition.
