Following a competitive tendering process, the Department for Education has announced Randstad as their chosen delivery partner for the National Tutoring Programme in 2021/22.
Further information for schools on accessing NTP support next year will be available in the coming weeks.
Professor Becky Francis, CEO of the Education Endowment Foundation (EEF), which helped establish the NTP, said:
The Education Endowment Foundation is proud to have helped establish the National Tutoring Programme in this exceptional school year. A year ago, the NTP didn’t exist. We responded to unprecedented challenges presented by the pandemic, and today hundreds of thousands of pupils in thousands of schools across the country have been able to access high-quality tutoring and support.
The EEF’s mission is to generate high-quality evidence and to ensure that evidence-based approaches can be scaled-up to support disadvantaged children. We have achieved this with the NTP. We believe that the programme has the potential to benefit hundreds of thousands of children every year and in handing over delivery for Year 2 as planned, we will work with Department for Education to ensure an effective transition between Phase 1 and Phase 2.”
