Some students need more help.

Social, emotional, or behavioural barriers, or learning difficulties, can make traditional school or college settings difficult

We offer small group sizes, dedicated tutors, 1:1 mentoring, and bespoke programmes, which larger institutions cannot. We’ve helped students who haven’t succeeded elsewhere.


Because you want the best for them

Learners may gain confidence and work-related skills in horticulture, catering, and digital skills, along with functional math, English, and IT.

Qualifications aren’t enough. We emphasise employability to prepare for the workplace. This could mean helping students enter a traineeship, apprenticeship, or further education programme. Our work coaches provide advice and guidance on progression routes and arrange internal and external work experience placements.

We’re special because we help our students with social skills and coping mechanisms, such as building confidence, reducing anxiety, and integrating into small groups. We help learners take advantage of every opportunity by working closely with The Prince’s Trust and other local providers, providing a programme of fun trips and activities during the summer holidays, and participating in fundraising/community projects to foster a sense of ‘belonging’.

We work closely with local authorities and learners with EHCPs to agree a bespoke learning package for each student.

Safeguarding Policies and Procedures.

Booster Sessions

Eat That Frog are passionate about our young learners, giving them every chance they can to progress and succeed. Over the last couple of years, we recognise that learning opportunities have been missed and many have experienced an extended and significant disruption to their education because of coronavirus. The Government also believe that learners who are vulnerable and from disadvantaged backgrounds may be among those who have been most affected by this interruption. To help address this, they are asking schools and colleges to provide additional and targeted support in order to help bridge these gaps.

Therefore we have been allocated additional funding for this purpose. The 16-19 tuition fund will enable Eat That Frog to provide small group tuition to students and groups of students who are in scope for this funding and who require additional teaching or support for English and Maths as well as other subjects that have been disrupted including vocational or academic learning. We believe that this support will help our learners get back on track, helping them to achieve the best possible outcomes and continue their progression.

The fund will be used for small groups (up to 5 learners) and where required 1:1 tuition in English, Maths and other subjects as required and is available to 16 to 19 year old learners. These sessions will be in addition to the current timetabled hours. This support will be based on an individual needs assessment, the identification of an individual starting point and will be set to meet clear learning goals, expectations, outcomes and help to aid progression.


Progression into work


Supporting your Traineeship

A traineeship is a flexible education and training programme with work experience that unlocks the great potential of young people. It prepares you for your future career by helping you to become ‘work ready’.

Traineeships are designed to help young people aged 16 to 24 who don’t yet have the skills or experience needed to get an apprenticeship or job.

Supporting your Internship

Supported internships are a structured study programme based primarily on an employer. They enable young people aged 16–24 with a statement of SEN, or an Education, Health and Care plan to achieve sustainable paid employment by equipping them with the skills they need for work, through learning in the workplace.

Supported internships are unpaid, and last for a minimum of six months. Wherever possible, they support the young person to move into paid employment at the end of the programme. Alongside their time at the employer, young people complete a personalised study programme which includes the chance to study for relevant substantial qualifications, if appropriate, and English and mathematics.


Supporting your Apprenticeship

If you are studying an Apprenticeship we are able to offer you learning support on a bespoke basis in line with your individual needs.

Please discuss your needs with our Learning Adviser.


Study Programmes are for young people who are aged 16-18<br>

(if you are 19+ and have an EHCP you are funded as a 16-18 Study Programme Learner).

An education, health and care plan (EHCP) is for children and young people aged up to 25 who need more support than is available through SEN support.

EHCPs identify educational, health and social needs and set out the additional support to meet those needs to secure the best possible outcomes for them across education, health and social care and, as they get older, prepare them for adulthood.


If, following a period of time at SEN Support stage, your child or young person is still not making the expected progress at school, you can ask for an Education, Health and Care needs assessment.

It is always better if the education provider (usually the SENCO) makes the request as they are more able to ensure all the required information and evidence is contained within the request. However, parents and young people (over 16’s) are also able to make requests themselves directly to the Local Authority.

Forms can be found on the Local Authority website.
