Delivering NTP tuition effectively is going to require the use of technology. The three technology platforms we have in place for you are intuitive to use and will really help you assess, plan and monitor the progress of your work. Alongside our platforms the NTP had its own Online Tuition Hub.
✓ Leap Tuition Platform
LEAP's reporting features help you communicate session feedback and pupil progress to schools. The platform also has tools for recording pupil attendance and viewing assessment data. This platform you will access each time you have tuition and has access inbuilt to our other 2 platforms (Bramble & EdPlace Online Assessments)
✓ Bramble Online Classroom
Bramble is our online classroom platform. Suitable for 1:1 and small group tuition lessons. It functions as a virtual whiteboard, in real-time.
✓ EdPlace Online Assessment
An online assessment tool, which quickly identifies areas requiring intervention. Students complete at the beginning and end of their tuition block. This tool helps you plan and evaluate your tuition for each child.
✓ NTP - Online Tuition Hubs
This central hub has been designed and maintained by the NTP and will need to be updated by creating time sheets for every session that is completed, this will allow the school to sign them off weekly
