16 to 19 Tuition Fund 2021-2022 Academic Year

Government Guidance for Funding

The funding is to support small group tuition for students aged 16-19 in English, maths and other subjects that have been disrupted, including vocational and/or academic learning.

All students must be on a 16-19 study programme and the funding should be used to support the tuition activity above and beyond the programmes of education already planned. It is for students who:

  • Have not achieved a grade 4 or 5 in English and/or maths
  • Have a grade 4 or above in English and/or maths, are from an economically disadvantaged background and would need catch-up support. These are defined as students from the 27% most economically deprived areas of the country based on the index of multiple deprivation. The funding is being provided to support small group tuition for 16 to 19 students in English, maths, and other courses where learning has been disrupted.

Providers should prioritise support for students who have not achieved a grade 4 in English and/or maths in the first instance. Institutions may subsequently provide tuition on the basis of a student not having received a grade 5 in maths and/or English

Providers need to consider what will be most effective for their eligible students, considering students’ needs and local circumstances.

Providers should also have regard to the needs of students with special educational needs and disabilities (SEND), particularly where they have experienced additional disruption to learning as a result of their specific needs and disabilities. Students aged 19-24 who have an Education Health and Care Plan are also eligible for support.

The funding should be used to support tuition costs only, that is the actual staff costs of delivering catch-up tuition. This could include essential record keeping complying with the fund requirements.

Group size 2021-2022: small groups of up to 5 students, in exceptional circumstances this may be extended to up to 7 students
