Young Giants is a student-centred, teacher-led tutoring service providing bespoke and flexible education packages for children in need of supplementary or alternative provision from KS1-5.
We are an approved and quality assured education provider for local authority boroughs in London and beyond, undergoing annual QMET inspections.
Managed by a team of qualified teachers, we support children and young people with a range of SEND (including complex needs/PMLD), neurodiversity, SEMH, those missing education and those at risk of exclusion.
Based on the needs of the child, our support takes the form of 1:1 (or 2:1) tuition in homes, schools or venues within the community. Where possible and safe to do so, we afford the opportunity for peer interaction amongst our students with a focus on school transitions.
Placing a strong focus on removing barriers to learning, our tuition incorporates the right amount of academic mentoring for the development of a Growth Mindset, positive behaviour for learning, academic confidence and personal ambition within the child.
We are an approved ASDAN centre, offering a range of ‘preparation for adulthood‘ pathway courses and qualifications up to Level 2, including ‘Employability’, ‘Personal and Social Development’ and ‘My Aspirations’. These courses are suitable for a wide range of learners including those with PMLD. This year we also become an approved Arts Award centre and are proud to now be offering Arts Awards Bronze and Silver. These awards, courses and qualifications have a significant impact on the academic confidence of our learners, supporting them to re-engage with education as a whole.
At Young Giants, our central aim is to support children and young people to re-engage with education or training so they can feel a genuine sense of inclusion within society.
How We Work...
Young Giants receives a referral from LA or other education agency and accepts this referral in principle, subject to sufficient & up-to-date information.
Young Giants reviews information and gathers further feedback from relevant parties known to the child.
Young Giants carries out a risk assessment for home/school/community tuition or mentoring.
Young Giants team of qualified teachers plan a package of support to best meet the educational needs of the child (including costs) and submits this to the original referrer.
Once approved, Young Giants commences with the package of support, providing regular progress updates to relevant parties.
More than tuition…
Rather than simply providing a tutor and stopping there, we consider ourselves a strong part of the team responsible for the educational progress and attainment of every one of our students.
Managed by a close team of qualified teachers, we work together to build bespoke packages of education support that best meet the needs of the child.
Commissioners, parents/carers and students can expect us to:
- Personally oversee each educational package
- Organise collaborative working amongst educators where an individual student is supported by more than one tutor
- Attend TAC meetings
- Book exams for those young people who cannot be on a school roll
- Support educators in their roles and share best practice
- Respond to changing needs in the student by re-organising the emphasis of an education package
Very rarely do you find a service so professional, efficient and personable. I have worked with Jaime over the past 12 months and Young Giants have provided an exceptional service for children and young people across the borough. The tutors and mentors have continued their outstanding work throughout covid-19 to ensure pupils are supported with their education, independence, social skills along with managing their anxieties and building self-esteem. Young Giants have supported many of our children missing education and NEET pupils with gaining qualifications, building confidence and transitioning into formal educational settings, alternative provisions and work. Young Giants work closely with the Local Authority to ensure outcomes are being achieved and attend professional meetings where possible. I could not recommend a better service

I am so pleased to have met you Jaime and think you are the absolute best at what you do. I will definitely recommend you wherever I go. Thank you for being such a brilliant company to work with.

My son has been tutored at home for some years and we have been involved with Young Giants only relatively recently during this academic year. The difference between other agencies and YG is that they help to fill the gap between parent and Local Authority and see their remit as much wider than just arranging good tuition. YG have organised examinations and have liaised with the LA officers without me having to ask, mainly because I don't know what to ask, I'm not a teacher and this is one of the hardest things about being out of the mainstream system, we just don't know what is needed and LA's staff are so stretched. Thank you YG for being the most proactive agency across the board, my son is definitely benefiting from your consistent attention to his needs.
