Platform Update

Self-service for partners, from Phill Hughes our Technology Manager

Dear partner,

I’m delighted to introduce myself and share some exciting updates coming to Tute Education’s learning platform for the next school year.

I’m Phill, technology manager here at Tute. With over nine years on the team, I’m responsible for all things tech, including our platform.

Over this past year, we have been actively listening to your feedback and implementing new functionalities to better meet the needs of our partners and students.  This summer and into the new year, we’re focusing on

  • Self-service administration
  • Improved reporting
  • Easier booking and scheduling
  • New user types (parents included!)

Our partners have expressed a desire to handle more tasks independently within our platform instead of relying on email requests. We’re thrilled to share that we’re on track to launch a suite of self-service functions from September, with details below.

We’ll share more information closer to the start of next term, including guidance videos on using these features. The other focus areas are also progressing well, with further launches anticipated in the autumn.

In the meantime, we’re here to answer any questions you might have.  We also welcome your ideas for our next platform feature – what would make using our service better? Please do let us know by completing this form.

Have a great summer,

Phill
