NAHT comments on Zahawi letter to schools on National Tutoring Programme

Commenting as Education Secretary Nadhim Zahawi writes to schools about the National Tutoring Programme, Paul Whiteman, general secretary of school leaders’ union NAHT, said:

“Ongoing delays, conflicting guidance, and a shortage of high-quality tutors in some areas has meant many schools have simply not been able to use the national tutoring programme.  Rather than trying to pressurise schools into using it, the government should focus on building a tutoring programme and an infrastructure that is actually fit for purpose.  It is completely wrong for the government to seek to hold schools to account for delivering tutoring, when it has yet to create a programme that properly delivers for schools and pupils.”
