Tuition with professional teachers at Aspire could cost less than the price of a single revision book thanks to Government child care vouchers.
Aspire, founded by experienced teachers, Andrea and David Parkinson, has registered with Ofsted as a childcare provider. This means that parents entitled to working tax credit can use it towards the cost of tuition.
Aspire offers Maths, English and Science for seven to 16 year olds at Basepoint Business Centre in West Swindon.
After an initial assessment, an individual programme is drawn up for each child. Tutors work in a ratio of one to four and use a variety of teaching materials and software to suit each learner’s style.
David Parkinson said the voluntary Ofsted registration brings peace of mind and cost savings for parents. “They can be assured that all our teachers are fully qualified and experienced, are CRB checked and that we have child protection policies in place. This means that parents and their children can benefit from child care and excellent tuition at the same time.”
For families qualifying for the full child care allowance, 80 minutes of tuition could cost as little as £4.80. Parents could be missing out on the child care element of Working Tax Credit if they pay less than £133 per week for their existing childcare. They could also be losing their allowance if their child is looked after by a friend or relative, or they have older children who are not in childcare after school.
