16 to 19 Tuition Fund Statement 2022 to 2023 Academic Year
The 16 to 19 tuition fund is ring-fenced funding for schools, colleges and all other 16 to 19 institutions who receive annual funding allocations from ESFA for the provision of 16 to 19 education, to mitigate the disruption to learning arising from coronavirus (COVID-19).
Our share of the funding is £6,326
The guidance related to the funding means that all students must be on a 16 to 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:
- students that have not achieved a grade 6 in GCSE English and/or GCSE maths at age 16 and would need catch-up support
- students from the 27% most economically deprived areas of the country (based on the index of multiple deprivation) and would need catch-up support
- students that are economically disadvantaged who meet the 16 to 19 Bursary Fund eligibility criteria and would need catch-up support to reach their full potential will be eligible, even where their prior attainment is high
The need for support will be determined and agreed between the eligible learners and staff.
The fund supports students that meet eligibility requirements in:
- small groups and one to one tuition
- tuition in English, maths/other academic subjects
- tuition in non-academic subjects, such as exam preparation
- tuition in vocational courses
