176: Closing the maths attainment gap with Third Space Learning

Third Space Learning was founded in 2013 with the goal of making one-to-one tuition accessible to children in need. 

Closing the maths attainment gap with one to one teaching. Personalised online maths lessons from specialist tutors.

Over three quarters or English Primary schools are signed up to the Third Space Platform, and the company has delivered over 800,000 hours of teaching to nearly 70,000 pupils, of whom 55% are from disadvantaged backgrounds, positioning Third Space Learning as the largest provider of tutoring to UK schools. 

Third Space has worked with thousands of schools in the UK to pioneer an online model that allows teachers to use TSL’s assessment and digital curriculum to direct online tutors to target learning gaps as they arise in class, thus supporting class teaching strategies. TSL’s online learning is integrated with a global tutor community that achieves a quality, cost and scale that can genuinely make tutoring a tool for schools to help support pupils at risk of falling behind. 

Tom Hooper has been working on EdTech for nearly 12 years. He founded Third Space Learning in 2013. Prior to that, in 2009, Tom Founded BrightSpark an online tutoring business, which he sold to TES in 2012.
