Apricot Online


Apricot Online is one of the UK’s leading providers of live, online education. We teach children aged 8 to 25 part-time who require teaching outside of mainstream schools for short or long periods of time. We work with clients and students to agree a timetable suitable for the student(s).

Teachers and students login to our secure learning platform and navigate to their classrooms. All of our students come to us with issues affecting their learning (mental, social, emotional, or physical health issues), learning difficulties (including Autism and Asperger’s), challenging life circumstances, refusal to attend school, and/or excluded or at risk of exclusion).

Each student has their own needs. Some may be able to join a small group (10 max), while other may benefit from 1:1 tuition. We provide a re-engagement service of education provision from KS2-KS5, where learners are introduced to highly participatory lessons online. These interactive lessons cultivate relationships quickly, enhance student motivation, and build confidence through a variety of rich-media techniques and AFL.

Referral Details

The Referral for Alternative Provision Form must be completed by the purchaser for each individual pupil detailing the purchasers requirements and be sent directly to the Provider by e mail or in writing and to alternativeeducation@middlesbrough.gov.uk

On receipt of the order the Provider must, within 2 working days:

  • Notify the Purchaser and the Council that it declines to accept the order; or
  • That it accepts the order by signing and returning copies of the order from to the Purchaser and the council.

If the Provider notifies the Purchaser that it declines to accept the order, or fails to accept the order within 2 working days then the order from the Purchaser will lapse and the purchaser may offer the order to another service provider.

Once a Provider accepts an order it will be bound by the terms of the framework contract.
