For the third year in a row, we continue to offer our tutors the Professional Development Programme. In the series of six seminars, tutors have the opportunity to expand their knowledge of recent ideas in pedagogy, share experience of working with students and explore new approaches to teaching their subject. In the first Professional Development Seminar this academic year, our tutors met to further their knowledge on planning well-structured and purposeful lessons that fit into a long-term teaching plan.
Trefoil Tutors got another addition to its Leadership Team this week, with Tim Backhaus joining us as Office Manager. With a background in law, Tim brings extensive experience in managing and working with youth organisations and other non-governmental organisations operating on a national and international level.
Based in our Elstree office, Tim will be the first point of contact for enquiries, manage internal and external communication and coordinate our advertising campaigns.
Tim can be contacted directly at firstname.lastname@example.org.

he owner of a banana plantation has a camel. He wants to transport his 3000 bananas to the market, which is located after the desert. The distance between his banana plantation and the market is about 1000 km. So he decided to take his camel to carry the bananas. The camel can carry at the maximum of 1000 bananas at a time, and it eats one banana for every kilometer it travels.
What is the largest number of bananas you can bring over to your destination?
You are blindfolded and 10 coins are place in front of you on table.
You are allowed to touch the coins, but can’t tell which way up they are by feel. You are told that there are 5 coins head up, and 5 coins tails up but not which ones are which.
How do you make two piles of coins each with the same number of heads up?

For many of our students, the exam season is starting! Remember to spend time outside and enjoy the warming weather – and at the same time, use these important final days before the exams to talk to your tutor about any topics you feel you would like to revisit, so you are ready to enter the exam hall with increased confidence, solidified knowledge and an invigorated mind. We wish you the best of luck!
