The 16 to 19 Tuition Fund 2021 to 2022 Academic Year

The 16 to 19 tuition fund 2021 to 2022 academic year

The ESFA has made funding available to post-16 educational providers to support students who have had their learning affected by the Coronavirus pandemic. The Tuition Fund is ring-fenced for schools, colleges and all other 16 to 19 providers to mitigate the disruption to learning arising from coronavirus.

The funding can be used to provide small group tuition for 16-19-year olds on a study programme where their learning has been disrupted and they have a GCSE maths and / or English grade of 4 or below at age 16. Although the support is targeted based on prior attainment in maths/English, the funding is not limited to support in these subjects and will be provided according to need across a variety of subjects.

F2E is due to receive £3,498.00, the tuition fund will enable F2E to give additional vital support so the interns can re-engage with learning and interact with others e.g. peers, support staff, employers and members of the community.  F2E will engage the services of qualified teaching staff to work with groups of students away from their workplace giving specific support to raise the level of Maths and English to GCSE level 4 or above.  Job Coaches will engage interns in specific interventions to build their confidence in the community and workplace.

F2E is committed to ensuring that the tuition fund is used in accordance with the Government’s guidance on the 16 to 19 Tuition Fund by:

  • producing this statement setting out how the fund will be used to support the most disadvantaged students.
  • publishing this statement on the website.
  • recording the use of the fund, including references to individual students who receive support, the needs of those students, the number of hours of tuition delivered and retaining the evidence of the tuition provided.
  • delivering the extra tuition and spend the allocated funds in the academic year 2021/22
  • notifying the Education Skills Funding Agency (ESFA) of any underspend from the Fund for it to be reclaimed.
