Waltham Abbey Tutor Groups


Face to Face group lessons at AWE Club in Waltham Abbey 2021/2022

The GREEN lessons are Neil’s courses which are the syllabuses that have marked coursework which makes up part of the students final grade. Neil marks all coursework and submits the grades to the exam centre where he has an established long term relationship. Students sit just one final exam at our local exam centre in Hertfordshire or at T&E (Tutors and Exams). Please ask Debbie for the discount code if you book exams with T&E as AWE Club Home Education is an approved Learning Partner of T&E, meaning you get a discount!  

Neil plans to return to ‘Face to Face’ teaching at AWE Club in Waltham Abbey in September 2021. His new GCSE/IGCSE courses will start in June 2021 with the lessons online until the Summer holidays and then in September Neil’s courses will run on Wednesdays and Thursdays at AWE Club Waltham Abbey. I hope to see you all there in September!

The BLUE lessons are the AWE Club permanent online timetable, for all the details please go to this page 


AWE run weekly, small group, lessons with professional qualified teachers in Waltham Abbey. They are planned so that long journeys are worthwhile, enabling children to come for whole days thereby spending time with their friends during lessons and in the breaks. The children benefit from group learning and reasonable costs and make friends too. The Science teacher ensures there are lots of hands on experiments using real equipment that Home Educators find difficult to access.

“Hi Debbie. I hope it’s ok but I wanted to pass on my appreciation and thanks to Mike the science teacher. Seriously this man, is a gem!! He takes his job and his responsibility so darn seriously I needed to say something. [personal details removed]
Mike is organised, reliable, making amazing use of the technology and just darn perfect!! He even has recording of his lessons (****** has been unable to attend this weeks so that is so handy!) Thank you Mike for adapting so beautifully to this situation. You are very very much appreciated. :))”


“The group of young people in his class, are all so lovely. He’s had an amazing 2 years doing the course. I’m so grateful to you for creating the space where our home educated children can come and learn together. Thank you Debbie”

Tutored Group Lessons

Lessons are run in Waltham Abbey and have students attending from a wide range of locations. Parents must remain on site but can leave if another parent agrees to take responsibility for their child. This is a good time for the children to socialise and gives the parents an opportunity to chat with like-minded families.

    AWE Online Tutoring - Rules and guidelines

    Payments
    Parents pay for each half term in advance via PayPal. Teachers commit to provide online lessons for that half term. You are welcome to do one trial lesson per subject at a cost of £11. After that if you decide to continue you will ned to pay for the rest of that half term in advance. No refunds are given within each half term, you only commit financially to one half term. Once you have submitted this form you will receive an email to the address you entered above telling you how to pay.

    Refunds
    These payments are not refundable as we provide the lessons based on numbers of students and if people ask for refunds part way through the half term it may not be viable to run the lessons for the remaining students. Parents are responsible for ensuring students have correct equipment and the ability to connect to the lessons.

    Sickness and illness
    No refunds are given if your child does not attend the class for any reason including illness.

    Should a teacher become ill and have to cancel any class or classes, they will do their best to notify parents in plenty of time where possible. Teachers will try to arrange a replacement class or classes to take place on an alternative date or time if they can.

    Facebook
    Parents should where possible join the FACEBOOK page AWE HOME EDUCATION HERE (opens in a new window) as any last minute cancellations or messages are posted there in the first instant.

    Supervision
    Parents are responsible for monitoring their child’s attendance and behaviour during online lessons. Please ensure they are set up ready to start at the correct time as it can be very disruptive if they login late and require assistance. Please ensure children do not mute the teacher as they will miss out.

    Online Security
    Teachers use trusted reliable systems that are kept up to date with the latest security upgrades. They will not share your data with any third parties.

    Exam entries
    Exams are optional not compulsory. Parents are responsible for booking as an external candidate at an exam centre of their choice. Teachers will advise details of exam codes required for entry. We only run courses online for qualifications that are ‘final exam only’ and do not require any kind of coursework or controlled assessment. Teachers are unable to provide predicted grades as we do not hold mock exams or controlled assessments for online courses.

    Unforeseeable Circumstances
    The Coronavirus situation has shown that we can’t plan for every situation despite our best efforts. Should anything unforeseen happen all parties will do their best to come to an agreeable solution where possible.

    Your details will be stored within the rules of our Data Policy (opens in new window).
