Track progress, engagement, and attendance with ease

Our partners (education settings we partner with) have access to their own portal in Tute’s platform to view student information.

After every lesson, Tute teachers assess student progress and engagement in the platform against the scheme of learning objectives. They also provide a suggestion for the students’ progress.

Attendance is tracked in each lesson. If a student has not attended within 5 minutes, designated contacts (including guardians, if you wish) receive an email notification.

Our partners can access comprehensive and summarised information through the platform, with the option to download reports for seamless sharing.
