16-19 Tuition Fund 2020/21


16-19 Tuition Fund 2020/21


This statement sets out how Energy Coast UTC is using the 16-19 Tuition Fund from September 2020


What is the 16-19 Tuition Fund?

The 16-19 tuition fund is one off funding for the 2020/21 academic year that is ring fenced to support students and mitigate disruption to learning arising from the COVID-19 pandemic.

How will Energy Coast UTC use the funding?

The funding is being 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.

Sessions will be limited to three to five students per group and will be either during the day or after school depending on student need.

The fund will help pay for extra hours for current teachers and learning mentors to deliver the sessions and examples of some of the tuition support on offer will include:

  • GCSE exam re-sit preparation
  • Functional skills assessment preparation
  • Bespoke subject support/catch-up

Tuition support offered will be based on an individual needs assessment, the identification of an individual starting point, clear learning goals, expectations and outcomes.
