Become an approved Tuition Partner
Find out how to become an approved Tuition Partner, as part of the National Tutoring Programme.
Organisations can apply via the Open Access Scheme. This is a commercial process used to create a panel of organisations that are approved to deliver services. In the case of NTP, this framework consists of tutoring organisations who will be eligible to provide subsidised tutoring to schools. Under the Open Access Scheme, a set of criteria are used to define standards. Each standard must be met for an organisation to be admitted to the framework. Organisations that have evidenced that they meet all the standards, have been admitted onto the framework to be eligible to provide tutoring through the NTP, as a Tutoring Partner.
In order for an organisation to be eligible for the NTP, they need to be able to meet the Tutoring Partner Quality Standards and Accreditation Criteria.

Tuition Partner funding covers a range of different tuition models, including online and face-to-face, as well as 1:1, 1:2 and 1:3 ratios. The overarching aim of the Tution Partner route is that 80% of sessions will be delivered on a 1:3 ratio, with sessions of 1:1 and 1:2 largely intended for pupils with additional needs and exceptional cases.
Schools can purchase one 15-hour subsidised block of tuition per pupil, from a Tuition Partner. The breakdown of this can vary, for example one session r per week for an hour, over a 15 week period.
It’s important that Tuition Partners develop positive working relationships with both pupils and teachers. Pupil relationships are critical, to ensure motivation to attend sessions. Tuition Partners will also work closely with teachers to maintain high attendance at sessions.
