  • Academic Year 2020/21 16-19 Tuition Fund

    Published 29/01/21

    16 – 19 Tuition Fund

    The 16-19 tuition fund is a one-off funding allocation for 20-21 academic year only. The fund is being provided to support learners to catch up and close any gaps in their learning that may have been exacerbated by the COVID-19 lockdown.

    This funding will be used to provide personalised support through small group tuition, additional tutorial sessions and pastoral support, for eligible 16 to 19 students in English, maths, and other courses where learning has been disrupted by the Covid19 lockdown.

    Eligible students will be those identified by the Government as disadvantaged, meaning those who had not achieved grade 5 or above at GCSE in either English or maths by age 16 and those with special educational needs and disabilities (SEND) aged 19 to 24 who have an Education, Health and Care Plan (EHCP). Those students who did not achieve a GCSE grade 4 in English or maths by age 16 will be prioritised.

    The funding will be allocated to curriculum areas, prioritising English and maths, to support small groups of students, typically 3 to 5, who typically have gaps in their knowledge, a need to improve in specific areas or need more time with subject specialists. The aim is to support skills development, knowledge and understanding to enable good progress on their study programme and effective transition to the next stage of their learning or employment.

    In some cases, it will provide additional tutorial sessions to further enhance personal development and progression opportunities for identified students, and used to fund additional pastoral support to ensure the wellbeing of students and allowing them to fully engage with the available academic support.
