We have no financial shareholders and operate a not-for-profit business model. Any surplus that we generate is reinvested to improve outcomes for children and young people. This ensures that we deliver great value services that are continually improving.
We are a traded unit within Somerset County Council that offers a wide variety of support services to all education providers, including schools, academies, Early Years providers, childcare settings and local authorities.
Across our core specialisms; Finance & Business Management, ICT, Management Information Systems (MIS/SIMS) and HR Support; we offer consultancy, Training, Service Desks and managed services to schools and academies.
We understand that each school is unique. Therefore, we tailor our products and services to the individual needs of each one. Our approach is dynamic because we recognise that the needs of our customers may change.

Welcome to the Tusla Education Support Service (TESS) website.
TESS operates under the Education (Welfare) Act, 2000, a piece of legislation that emphasises the promotion of school attendance, participation and retention. TESS has three strands namely the Statutory Educational Welfare Service (EWS) and the two school support services the Home School Community Liaison Scheme (HSCL) and the School Completion Programme (SCP). The three TESS strands work together collaboratively with schools, families and other relevant services to achieve the best educational outcomes for children and young people.
