16-19 Tuition Fund

What is the 16 – 19 Tuition Fund?

The 16 to 19 tuition fund is one-off funding provided by the Department for Education for the 2020 to 2021 academic year only. It is ring fenced funding to mitigate the disruption to learning arising from coronavirus (COVID-19).

The funding is provided to support small group tuition for 16 to 19 students in English, maths, and other courses where learning has been disrupted.

The students supported all need to be those who had not achieved grade 5 or above in at least one of those subjects at this level by age 16. All supported students must be on a 16 to 19 study programme.

How is the fund being used at Sharnbrook Sixth Form?

The fund is helping to secure achievement for all by providing small group tuition in English and Maths to those students who have not yet secured a Grade 4 in either GCSE English, GCSE Maths or both; and who were studying for those qualifications at the time of national closure of schools and colleges in March 2020.

The 16 – 19 Tuition Fund will be used to provide:

  • Small group (5 students or fewer) tuition in GCSE English and GCSE Maths for students who have not achieved a Grade 4. Disadvantaged students and those with SEND are prioritised for this support.

Capacity to deliver GCSE Maths in small groups to students who need to achieve a Grade 4 in order to support their progression with Level 3 qualifications.
