16 to 19 Tuition Fund
The 16 to 19 tuition fund is £96 million of one-off funding for the 2020-21 academic year only. It is ring fenced funding for schools, colleges and all other 16 to 19 providers to mitigate the disruption to learning arising from coronavirus (COVID-19.
The funding is being provided to support small group tuition for 16 to 19 students in English, mathematics, and other courses where learning has been disrupted. Although the actual tuition does not need to be for GCSE English or maths, the students supported all need to be those who had not achieved grade 5 or above in at least one of those subjects at this level by age 16. All supported students must be on a 16 to 19 study programme.
