16 to 19 tuition fund 2021 to 2022
The 16 to 19 tuition fund is ring-fenced funding for schools, colleges and all other 16 to 19 institutions who receive annual funding allocations from ESFA for the provision of 16 to 19 education, to mitigate the disruption to learning arising from coronavirus (COVID-19).
The funding is to support small group tuition for students aged 16 to 19 in English, maths and other subjects that have been disrupted, including vocational and/or academic learning. Students aged 19 to 24 who have an education, health and care (EHC) plan are also eligible for support. All students must be on a 16 to 19 study programme and the funding should be used to support the tuition activity above and beyond the programmes of education already planned. It is for students who:
- have not achieved a grade 4 or 5 in English and/or maths
- have a grade 4 or above in English and/or maths, are from an economically disadvantaged background and would need catch-up support. These are defined as students from the 27% most economically deprived areas of the country based on the Index of Multiple Deprivation
What we do at AGS
We have for many years provided timetabled lessons for students who need to resit either English or maths in our 6th Form. This funding will contribute to the staffing of these lessons by AGS teaching staff whom the students know well.
Students will receive 2 one hour lessons a week (4 a fortnight) until they obtain a Grade 4 or above in either/both subjects. This will continue into Year 13 if necessary.
