Bethan Puig Nieves

Bethan was appointed as Curriculum and Training Manager in June 2022.

In this role, she commissions high-quality, tailored tutoring resources for pupils and tutors, manages the robust and ongoing initial tutor training, and oversees the quality assurance processes within our organisation, in collaboration with the Impact and Quality Team.

I love the variety in my role. I get to collaborate with colleagues from across the organisation, coordinating our efforts to provide the best possible support for our volunteer tutors. I also ensure that our curriculum is aligned to national requirements, continually reviewing and enhancing our resources so that they have the maximum impact on our pupils. Finally, my responsibility for quality assurance is an opportunity to develop systems and to ensure that changes we make to our provision for tutors is always evidence-led. It’s a wonderful role with so many aspects to it, and flexibility to explore my own areas of interest!

I am excited about growing our training provision for tutors, and ensuring that when tutors work with us, they have access to a wide range of exciting and accessible resources in order to build their capacity as educators.

I value the flexitime, because it means I can shape my working days in a way that suits me! I also think the focus on the health and well-being of staff at Action Tutoring is incredible: there is a genuine understanding of what good mental health and well-being looks like in a workplace, and concrete actions are in place to support staff.
