What is the 16-19 tuition fund?
The 16-19 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. The funding should be used to support small group tuition for 16 to 19 students in English, maths, 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 4 in at least one of those subjects at this level by age 16.
How will we use the 16-19 tuition fund?
Hucknall Sixth Form Centre is eligible to receive £2484 from this fund for small group tuition. We will be using this funding to support students who have not yet achieved a grade 4 in English and/or maths at GCSE. We will be prioritising those students with special educational needs and disabilities (SEND) where appropriate. This tuition will be in addition to students’ normal timetabled GCSE English and maths lessons and will be in groups of no more than 5.
