This academic year the government is providing funding for tutoring through schools for those children most disadvantaged and negatively impacted by the pandemic. This includes a continuation of the National Tutoring Programme, however other funding options are available.
Any state-maintained school in England is eligible to apply for tutoring.
The funding is aimed at supporting disadvantaged pupils, including those eligible for Pupil Premium funding. A minimum of 65% of pupils schools selected for National Tutoring Programme tutoring must be pupil-premium. School-led funding grants offer schools more flexibility for which pupils receive funding.
The National Tutoring Programme (NTP) aims to support teachers and schools in providing a sustained response to the coronavirus pandemic and to provide a longer-term contribution to closing the attainment gap. As part of the programme, schools will be able to access subsidised high-quality tuition from an approved list of Tuition Partners.
As providers of qualifications and resources from ages 5-19, we are in a unique position to provide high-quality tuition from UK qualified teachers, using standardised lesson materials and assessments. We offer the highest quality of online delivery through our established partner platform, Bramble.
We only work with fully qualified teachers, most of whom have extensive experience of marking GCSE or SATs papers.
Our tried-and-tested lesson materials and assessments are standardised to ensure high-quality delivery throughout.
Online tutoring is proven to be highly effective. It provides flexiblity in scheduling for schools and pupils, the widest selection of high calibre tutors and limits covid-infection risks.
Following feedback from schools and experts, we have chosen to support the core subjects at the key stages where we can provide qualified teachers who will have the greatest impact on a child’s learning.
