How the funding works
Information for schools on costs and funding for the National Tutoring Programme.
All routes of the National Tutoring Programme: Tuition Partners, Academic Mentors and School-Led Tutoring are subsidised by the Department for Education.
In the 2021 to 2022 academic year, should you choose to utilise support via Tuition Partners, 70% of the cost will be subsidised.
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.
Alternatively, if School-Led Tutoring is the right solution for you, your school will have a ring-fenced grant to fund locally sourced tutoring provision. 75% of the cost will be subsidised and the remaining could be funded by schools via other budgets such as the Recovery Premium or Pupil Premium.
