Tower Learning Centre is located in the centre of Blackpool. It is Blackpool, Wyre and Fylde’s leading provider of tuition, adult education, examinations and Alternative Provision, offering study programmes from age 6 to adult.
Kate Towers is the founder of Tower Learning Centre. As a secondary school teacher with over 30 years teaching experience, she has a passion for helping her students to reach their full potential. Her background of teaching includes many years in a secondary school in Torquay as an RE and English teacher; Head of RE and IT before moving to Blackpool and teaching in a local school before setting up the tuition business in 2004.
The purpose of establishing the tuition business was to continue with her passion for helping students who struggled with their general studies, confidence, motivation, bullying, specific SEN needs, disengagement and many other reasons needing extra support. The Centre offers an individual approach where every student has a personalised programme of study in agreement with and supported by the parents/ guardians/ provider.
The success of the Centre can be seen in many ways: improvements in their school studies; moving up a group at school; being able to have the confidence to put their hand up in class or attempting a task they thought they could not do; a renewed desire to do well and achieve those qualifications; teaching a 40 year old man to read and write; helping adults to gain qualifications to make a career change; giving out certificates for effort and achievements to all ages at the Centre’s Annual Awards Evening celebration event.
Following on from the initial assessment, a personalised learning programme will be planned, tailor made to the needs of the student. Lessons are monitored closely and regularly so the planning will reflect the support the student needs to promote confidence, motivation and ability.
Tower learning are very accommodating and flexible in the delivery needs required, and ensure they always update me on the learners progress and development. The staff at Tower Learning are professional, and friendly establishing good relationships with the learners
Groundwork have been working with Tower Learning for the past twelve months on a number of different programmes, the support offered to our learners has been fantastic. I would and have recommended Tower Learning to anyone
As a private training provider that has a requirement for its Learners to gain Level 1 and 2 in Functional Skills; we required the assistance of specialists in the delivery of English and Maths. After meeting with Tower Learning, their understanding of our bespoke working needs and requirements led to them taking over the provision of Functional Skills training for our Learners - and we’ve never looked back. Their team of tutors is highly skilled and capable; they provide a quality driven service that has enhanced our provision for both Learners and our Delivery team. From a business perspective, they offer value for the services provided and pride themselves on working with their clients to meet the clients’ needs. We would happily recommend Tower Learning to any Training Provider, School or College that needs a quality provision, with high standards and great client focus.
I have noticed a huge improvement in my education in the last 6 months and Kate has made me realise that education means a lot and you need it for your future.
Everything is explained to me clearly. I was able to do my exams confidently and I have been getting good scores on my mocks.
Thank you for the magnificent work you have done with our lads
Thank you for providing the learning that was effective for Nathaniel to get his Grade C in English. He was more relaxed about sitting the exam and preferred the one on one teaching experience.
Our students have progressed both academically and personally. I would recommend Tower Learning to other agencies.
A huge thank you—in a short space of time, with your help, Sasha has finally got the pass she needs and we wouldn’t have got there without your help. Her tutor was brilliant.
