Becoming an approved NTP
Tuition Partner

Become an approved Tuition Partner with the National Tutoring Programme

Tuition providers who wish to deliver any form of tuition as part of the NTP must apply to become an approved NTP Tuition Partner.

As the quality assurance partner for the National Tutoring Programme (NTP), Tribal works closely with the Department for Education (DfE) and the tutoring sector to deliver a robust quality assurance process for approval and ongoing reviews of Tuition Partners. This ensures the delivery of high-quality tuition and the best possible experience for schools and pupils. 
We invite you to join the National Tutoring Programme as an approved Tuition Partner.

Tribal's approach to Quality Assurance is one of collaboration. We work closely with the tutoring sector to build a supportive culture. Together, we are developing a community, enabling the sharing of best practice and fostering continuous growth and improvement.

Using the Quality Assurance framework, Tribal asses all new Tuition Partners prior to acceptance onto the approved Find a Tuition Partner service. Tuition Partners are then quality assured annually to ensure continued quality of tutoring and learning outcomes for pupils.
