Whether you want to study for an ICT qualification or simply, just want to learn the basics, we have a course for you. We not only run short courses aimed at those who want to learn functional computer skills but also longer, accredited courses.
We offer the "OCR Level 2 Diploma in ICT User Skills" which is a nationally recognised qualification, comparable to 3 GCSE passes at A*-C grade. Although aimed at adults, we have found it to be suitable for all our learners, including those as young as 9 and 10 years old!
Over the past 5 years, our pass rate in this exam has been 100% and our candidates ages have ranged between 10 and 55. A large number of boys who attend our centre (65%) and also, children with Specific Learning Needs, have been extremely successful in passing this qualification.
Our expert tutors have the knowledge and experience to support your child through their 11+ preparation. We aim to equip your child with the necessary skills to tackle all aspects of the 11+ exam with confidence on the day of their exam, by providing bespoke tutoring for children in Verbal and Non Verbal Reasoning, as well as in Maths and English. We do this by assessing each child on an individual basis and then creating an appropriate programme of study for them.
We use a variety of multimedia packages to support children in all aspects of their key stage 2 SATs work. After identifying any areas of weakness, we help your child learn in a fun, and effective way, so they are able to achieve their potential.
Not only do we work on the year 6 curriculum, but we also teach exam techniques and revision skills, so that your child will feel confident and fully prepared in tackling these exams.
At Smartkids we are able to provide experienced tuition in a range of GCSE subjects, including English Maths, Science, Humanities, ICT, and Languages. We will advise on revision skills and exam technique so that your child can be successful at this level.
We are able to offer adults and children a range of bespoke languages courses at all levels. Whether you need languages for business, want to learn holiday languages in preparation for your next trip abroad or, are working towards GCSE or A Level and need extra support, we have highly experienced languages teachers who can help you achieve your goals.
Specific Learning Needs
At Smartkids, we recognise that all children are individuals who require learning programmes specific to their needs. As our centre is inclusive and our tutors experienced in teaching all children, we are fully committed to helping children who have been diagnosed with a specific learning need (Irlen, Dyslexia, Dyspraxia, ADHD, Autism etc).
We build on our learners strengths as well as addressing their needs. As a consequence, their self confidence, independence, and motivation, improves so that they achieve success.
After an initial parental consultation and informal assessment, we will develop a personal educational programme to support your child. We also allocate a mentor who works with them each week. This maintains continuity and develops a supportive working relationship through which children are able to make rapid progress in their studies.
