Overcoming the AEP capacity crisis facing the UK

Discover solutions that are giving students currently left on long waiting lists, access to quality education

Since summer, the number of students not attending mainstream schools has been soaring, with over a third of councils reporting having long waiting lists for pupil referral unit places. The demand for a suitable solution is showing no sign of slowing down.  

During our webinar, Tute was joined by our guest panellist, Neil Bugdale, Assistant headteacher at Sprowston Community Academy, where he shared their secret to how they’ve been successfully tackling AEP capacity issues, with a flexible, accessible solution that’s been re-engaging learners, increasing attendance, and improving outcomes.
