Expert teachers for Bright students
Giving students the support they need with Small groups
Our programme is tailored by Expert teachers

We believe that every young person should have the support, skills and aspirations to reach their potential. 

Sadly, this is not the case for young people from low income areas in the UK and educational inequality is highest amongst the brightest students.  TalentEd is a charity that offers high-ability young people a year-long programme of weekly after-school sessions. Our qualified teachers and inspirational role models improve grades and academic and career options for those pupils. Click here to apply.

TalentEd’s programmes are tailored to the needs of the individual by expert teachers. Our partner schools identify the needs of their cohort and choose a programme theme, either a) study skills, confidence & aspirations, b) subject specific, or c) study skills & revision. TalentEd tutors then  provide individual support to their small group of students, tailoring sessions to help them reach their potential.

Since 2012, TalentEd has supported over 1280 bright students from disadvantaged backgrounds.

Our Theory of Change

Our success relies on our three key pillars: bright students, small groups, and expert teachers. Using these ingredients, we tailor our programme to the needs of the individual students. Personalised support is what makes a key difference to our students. View/download our brochure (PDF).

“My tutor was easy to learn from and took her time to explain something, even if it took the whole session.”
