i'm shocked at the bad feedback this organisation has received,after some additional research i realised as people can freely post negative comments about any organisation, this organisation was being made to look bad, nasty, in order to increase the amount of parents going to money grabbing home tutors instead. 3 of my closest friends Are on the program and am I & the children have all significantly improved.The consultant was polite & caring & gave us alternative options before we made our final decision. Alot of what i've read is lies however feel free to make your own decisions, don't just read to what is clearly fake onliners & not so bright parents rash comments. Also it is the open university which work in a similar way & are one of the most successful universities of all time as my hubby has done a course with them successfully. best of luck everyone and please feel free to share your parental thoughts.

OP - what a peculiar post. I have experience of The SSC and you must have been lucky. I worked in a school involved with The SSC and was frankly shocked at how they incentivised the school to collect data on parents in return for a fee. For each slip returned the school was paid & then the parents had to deal with the sales people. I am not quite sure what you mean by "not so bright parents rash comments" or why you think money goes to money grabbing tutors instead. I am bright and do not use a tutor, and nor would I spend money with this organisation.

Did you join mumsnet specially to try and puff up this company, OP?

Having re-read the OP, I guess English isn't your own first language and that may be you felt your children would benefit from additional support? I am hoping The SSC haven't preyed on someone vulnerable here, dressing their business up as doing the best for the children?
