Edexcel International Tuition Programme (EITP)
What is the Edexcel International Tuition Programme (EITP)? Who is it for?
The EITP is a Pearson Edexcel Lower Secondary Programme, benchmarked to Key Stage Three of the UK National Curriculum. It is intended for year 7 to year 9 pupils (Secondary 1 and Secondary 2). The EITP course is a single-phase, 18-month course designed to prepare students for a Pearson Edexcel IGCSE programme. It provides students with a solid grounding in the basics of the subjects they will go on to study at IGCSE level, together with essential training in academic and study skills.
The EITP is based on a specification devised by Pearson Edexcel. While focusing on clearly defined learning aims and objectives, the EITP is flexible in its delivery, ensuring that it meets the needs of students coming from a range of different education backgrounds. There are two main enrolment dates (January and July) but students may join the programme at any time. Specialist English Language support is provided for students who need it.
At the end of the EITP course, students will be equipped with the skills and subject knowledge needed to progress to the next stage of their school careers – usually an IGCSE programme. They may also opt to take Pearson Edexcel International Curriculum Examinations, designed to assess learning on this programme.
