Award Winner: Simply Learning Tuition

The popularity of this category has grown to such an extent, the judges decided to award a winner for entrants in the schools or education consulting sector. Simply Learning Tuition was a clear winner for the second time. The judges stated, “This firm clearly brings a caring and compassionate perspective to its services, but combines this with technological efficiency and excellent people management practices.” They recognised, “A very buttoned-down intelligent group of people with a bigger-picture awareness.”

Simply Learning Tuition is an education consultancy that provides specialist advice covering all stages of education, as well as introductions to the UK’s leading schools, universities and private tutors. Its carefully crafted entry showed a deep understanding of the requirements of relocating families and its clients are drawn from a wide range of backgrounds, from business to embassies and private individuals with children following a variety of global curriculums.

Nathaniel McCullagh, founder and managing director of Simply Learning Tuition, said, “We’re very honoured to receive such glowing recognition for the work of our truly dedicated education consultancy team. The Relocate Global Award couldn’t have come at a better time, as we embark on a year of growth and innovation in our service to parents and students around the world.”

Multi-Lingual Services 

The judges were impressed by the company’s success in growing its international footprint in 2018 through a number of avenues. This nimble organisation demonstrated its agility by supporting its multi-lingual websites and translation software, with in-house bilingual sales staff who are able to support each client with the care and personal service it is known for. Simply Learning Tuition has also built partnerships with overseas organisations, employing native speakers to address any communications issues when dealing with non-English speaking clients. Responding to parents’ concerns regarding Brexit, it has extended its reach beyond UK schools with the help of its international network and is now able to provide clients with services and options for multiple countries.

The judges commended Simply Learning Tuition’s approach to people management – ranging from well-being initiatives such as flexitime and mental health ambassadors
to continuing professional development and
charity work – which has resulted in a highly engaged team who go beyond the call of duty if needed.

A significant part of its work and success is vetting new potential tutors. The judges praised its use of technology to streamline the process and proprietary applications. They were impressed by an efficient system that also gave guidance to those rejected on how to improve their skills and reapply in the future.

Managing Academic Transitions 

Simply Learning Tuition clearly explains the vast improvements in screen sharing and white boarding technology. This, coupled with a continued focus on working with exceptional tutors means global families can get access to the very best British tutors. With online lessons, these can easily fit around inevitably hectic schedules when planning a relocation. Tutors often act as mentors and can help your child to deal with any anxiety or uncertainty around their school/country move.

The company is confident in the knowledge that it delivers a much-needed service for families who are relocating or need a tutor. It clearly understands that change is often stressful and that academic transitions can be particularly difficult for some students.

“Our work begins with our own team; providing a nurturing, creative workplace so that we can bring these internal values to all the work we do externally. We adopt a non-arrogant, non- judgemental approach to our clients and instead try to be honest, transparent and, above all, expert and efficient. We care that the work we do makes a positive difference”, the company stated in its winning submission. This shone through in its impressive entry and supporting testimonials.

“Winning an award shows that an independent panel has thoroughly investigated your company – and drawn good conclusions. Putting this into the context of the really high standard of competitors in this year’s awards, means that families can use a company’s service with confidence,” added McCullagh.
