The National Tutoring Programme (NTP) aims to support schools in providing a sustained response to the coronavirus pandemic and to provide a longer-term contribution to closing the attainment gap.
Through NTP Tuition Partners, schools can access subsidised high-quality tuition from an approved list of providers who have passed a set of quality, safeguarding and evaluation standards. Tutoring will be subsidised by up to 75%. This means that a school can purchase tutoring for four pupils for the normal cost of purchasing tutoring for a single child.
Through NTP Academic Mentors, trained graduates will be employed by schools in the most disadvantaged areas to provide intensive support to their pupils. Academic mentors will provide support tailored to their school, including subject-specific work (both one-to-one and in small-groups), revision lessons, and additional support for those shielding or not in school.
Both pillars of the NTP will be running from the second half of the Autumn term.
