How it works
Through the National Tutoring Programme (NTP) Tuition Partners pillar, participating schools can access high-quality tutoring from an approved list of tutoring providers, who have passed a set of quality, safeguarding and evaluation standards.
Tuition Partners include existing tutoring providers that have experience of working with schools or other organisations, such as charities, local authorities or universities who have designed a new programme to meet the NTP standards.
Tuition Partners have been selected through an open funding call, based on the quality of their model, evidence, and potential to scale to support large numbers of schools.
The focus of the NTP is on supporting disadvantaged pupils, including those eligible for Pupil Premium funding. A range of tutoring models have been funded, including those that are suitable for pupils with SEND and in Alternative Provision.
Tuition Partners offer a range of approaches, including online, face-to-face and hybrid models and small-group and one-to-one tuition. Participating schools can decide which Tuition Partner in their area to work with and which of their pupils will benefit the most from additional support.
Schools can access subsidised, high-quality tuition from Tuition Partners for the rest of the academic year by searching here.
The Education Endowment Foundation (EEF) will be leading the delivery of this part of the programme in the academic year 2020 – 2021.
