Carfax Tutors and Carfax Projects are honoured to be selected as Finalists of the Education Investor Awards 2015 for the third time in a row! The EIA promotes excellence and gives recognition to organisations that have contributed especially to the rapidly growing education sector.
Read on to find out more about what Carfax Tutors and Carfax Projects have achieved in the past year.
The 2014-15 academic year has seen Carfax Tutors continue to grow and innovate, and consolidate existing strong points in the field of private tuition. From new London summer programmes to anonymous tutor surveys, Carfax Tutors continues to generate new ideas and ways of improving the quality of teaching and learning.
Carfax Tutors has almost unparalleled international reach; its cross-continental presence is a reflection not so much of its business acumen, as of the excellence of its offering – it has expanded into areas where access to high quality tuition is limited, and given an unrivalled service. Alongside one-to-one tuition in London and online on an hourly basis, Carfax Tutors is also regularly called upon to provide residential tutors for families who are either permanently based overseas but not satisfied by the quality of tutors on offer locally, or for families who are travelling and wish to keep their children’s education ticking over during their time away from home. Tutors such as these have been provided in a range of locations worldwide, including Moscow, Muscat, and Mauritius.
Carfax Tutors is not only a tutoring agency – it is also a hotbed of ideas, offering a range of perspectives and intellects hailing from different disciplines and countries, that is regularly called upon to contribute to discussion in wider circles of topical educational subjects. Going beyond the normal preserve of tuition agencies and educational consultants, Carfax Tutors has had and continues to have an active media presence, and regularly participates in debates regarding the future of private tuition as an industry as well as topics and techniques directly related to learning.
The high calibre of Carfax’s tutors (the vast majority being graduates from Oxford, Cambridge, and Russell Group universities, with extensive tuition experience both in the United Kingdom and overseas) coupled with many of our tutors remaining with us for extended periods of time, leave Carfax uniquely positioned to offer only the very best tutors in the field, with a highly consistent service and outstanding results. Our pupils regularly achieve their academic aims such as gaining entry to their school or university of choice; on a regular basis we hear success stories from families delighted with their children’s achievements, facilitated by tutoring with Carfax tutors.

Carfax Projects has also marked this year with significant achievements. These included a full in-country Evaluation of Teacher Education Initiatives in Afghanistan, Teacher Training, Capacity Building and Ministry level research in the Maghreb, School Improvement Initiatives in the Gulf, as well as support for Ministries of Education throughout the MENA region, National TVET Programming in Central Asia, and support for Oil and Gas training in a range of contexts. Carfax Projects has also expanded its Monitoring and Evaluation practice internationally, working with major donors and international NGOs as part of wide-ranging initiatives in East Africa, the Indian sub-continent, and elsewhere.
Additionally, Carfax Projects has been undertaking a wide-range of strategic consultancy for education institutions, government bodies, and intergovernmental organisations, and conducted market-research initiatives for educational bodies and investors in Britain, USA, the Far East and Middle East, and the CIS. Moreover, consultancy support has been provided to foster effective development of sustainable capacity within education systems. The Projects Division has also authored numerous government reports, developed a series of textbooks for a government ministry in the gulf, and authored a major publication on education in the commonwealth for the Commonwealth Secretariat. Carfax has also supported school and nursery start-ups in America, Europe, and Asia.
This stands as a laconic, and far from exhaustive summary of Carfax Projects successes in the past year; its main asset remains its world-leading team of international educational experts who support all work within the division. The division is now well established as a global leader in the educational consultancy field, and a competitive destination for driven professionals seeking to excel in the education sector. In the year ahead, the projects division will continue to expand its work within Asia, the Americas, and the Gulf Region, as well as continuing to grow its presence throughout Africa and the Far East. Projects also seeks to launch custom pupil-tracking solutions, to complement its work in school improvement consultancy, as well supporting the expansion of Carfax Recruitment internationally, and school start-ups throughout the world.
