16-19 Tuition Fund Statement for the 23/24 Academic Year

What is the 16-19 Tuition Fund?

The 16-19 tuition fund is an additional funding allocation for the 23/24 academic year. The fund is being provided by the Education Skills Funding Agency (ESFA) to support students who have been disadvantaged and had their learning disrupted by the COVID-19 pandemic in order that they can catch up with their studies.

Who is eligible?

  • Students aged 16-19 who have not already achieved a GCSE grade 4 or above in maths and English.
  • Any students aged 16-25 who have an Education Health and Care Plan who require additional tuition or support to help them catch up.

How is Greenbank College using their allocation of this fund?

  • By delivering 1:1 sessions and small tuition groups of up to 5 students additional to the timetabled session hours. This tuition includes catch up and assessment preparation for GCSE and Functional Skills Maths and English; preparation for deferred assessments; vocational knowledge catch up sessions and study skills support.
  • By providing additional 1:1 and small group taught sessions to support students who need to catch up on practical skills required for vocational courses.

Additional tuition support will be based on an assessment of individual need and will have clear learning goals, expectations and outcomes.
