How the National Tutoring Programme funding works
Schools will have the flexibility to decide how to use their NTP funding. They can use the funding to pay for salaried, in-house academic mentors, to pay their existing staff or engage with a tuition partner that has been quality assured by the DfE. State-funded schools will receive NTP funding over the course of the academic year 23/24 to deliver tuition to their pupils. The funding can be used to cover 50% of the cost of tutoring, with schools targeting the tutoring offer towards their pupil premium cohort and paying the remaining 50% of the cost using their Pupil Premium (PP) or other core school budgets. For the academic year 23/24, the following NTP funding is provided: • Mainstream schools receive £162 per PP-eligible pupil • Non-mainstream schools receive £423 per PP-eligible pupil

We have tutors who are SEND specialists as well as specialists in English as an additional language (EAL) and we offer both face-to-face and online tuition.
How do we keep track of pupil progress?
We provide each tutor with a detailed progress reporting document prior to each tuition programme. Tutors use a baseline assessment to gauge current levels of understanding and must provide ongoing progress and engagement data as the programme progresses. The progress reporting document monitors each pupil after 5, 10 & 15 hours of tuition support and includes supporting evidence.
What subjects and stages do we offer?

Who are our tutors and how do we recruit them?
Our network of tutors are highly skilled individuals, with many holding QTS qualifications. We also make certain that all our tutors meet our stringent compliance, background and qualification checks, and all complete our compulsory training prior to working on any tuition programme. As a result, our tutors never fall short of exceptional when it comes to the standard of teaching.
Which students are eligible for tuition?
NTP partners will be targeted to reach disadvantaged pupils that are eligible for pupil premium funding, however teachers can decide themselves which pupils are in need of the most support.
