Post 16 Tuition Fund 2020-2021

The Post 16 Tuition Fund is one-off funding from the ESFA for the 2020-2021 academic year only. It is ring-fenced to support small group tuition for students on 16 to 19 study programmes who did not achieve Grade 5 or above in English or Maths GCSE by age 16 and have had their learning disrupted in 2019 to 2020 academic year from the coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak. Chancellor’s will use the Post 16 Tuition Funding to support identified students whose academic progress and wellbeing has been affected by the impact of the current pandemic. A breakdown of the fund distribution can be found in the table below.
