The programme offers a highly tailored combination of tuition support, to support those pupils whose education has been most impacted by the pandemic.
Whilst sessions commence from September (Academic Year 2021-22), the programme is now open for school registrations.
By registering you will be granted access to the Tuition Hub. Here you will be able to create a unique profile where you can easily navigate through the most appropriate tuition options to suit your school.
Once your profile is set up on the Tuition Hub you will have the ability to choose between the following tuition options:
- Tuition support option 1: Tuition Partner support – engage with expert external Tuition Partners to provide 15 hour blocks of targeted support;
- Tuition support option 2: Academic Mentor support – raise a request for one of the National Tutoring Programme (NTP) approved and qualified Academic Mentors to join your school. The Academic Mentors will be employed directly by your school to provide support on a targeted basis to pupils, again in 15 hour blocks.
Both strands of NTP: Tuition Partners and Academic Mentors are subsidised by the Department for Education, to support your pupils. In AY 2021/22, should you choose to utilise support via Tuition Partners, 70% of the cost will be subsidised. Alternatively, if you choose to employ an Academic Mentor, 95% of the cost will be subsidised. We anticipate that the remaining costs can be typically funded through the Recovery Premium or Pupil Premium.
The process and our support team
The NTP team is ready to support you through implementation of whichever support you choose to engage with, and now is a great time to start your registration and expression of interest. The system is designed to be easy to use and underpins the entire end-to-end process.
Based on your feedback, we have made the sign-up process as quick and easy to use as possible. To sign up for either a Tuition Partner or Academic Mentor support now takes less than five minutes. Furthermore, once registered it is easy to make amends to your account to add more sessions. A handbook is available once you have created your initial profile to support you throughout the process. If you have any questions at any stage then please do not hesitate to reach out to our Engagement team via our contact form.
