16-19 Tuition Fund Statement
This statement gives an overview of how Achieve Training will utilise its allocation for the 16 to 19 tuition fund allocation. This is an additional funding allocation made to support students who have had their learning disrupted by the Covid-19 pandemic.
What is the 16-19 Tuition Fund?
The 16-19 tuition fund is a one-off funding allocation for 20-21 academic year only. The fund is being provided to support learners to catch up and close any gaps in their learning that may have been exacerbated by the COVID-19 lockdown. The fund will be used for small group and 1:1 tuition in English, Maths and vocational learning for 16 to 19-year-old learners. This tuition will be in addition to the planned study programme hours.
How is Achieve Training Using the 16-19 Tuition Fund?
Students are benefiting from more individual lessons and other support. We have reduced class sizes for those who would most benefit from additional help to get back on track with their learning. Classes of up to five are being delivered to enable teachers to spend more time with each student to help them improve their understanding of specific subjects to suite their need. These subjects include:
- Practical subjects such as engineering and construction
- Personal development
Furthermore, learners identified as needing specific additional guidance and support are also receiving additional one-to-one academic support to help them improve their study skills, academic planning and the progress they are making. Students considered to have specific support needs, including those with special educational needs and disabilities, are also receiving additional small-group tuition to support their progress.
Tuition Support offered will be based on an individual need’s assessment, the identification of an individual starting point, clear learning goals, expectations and outcomes.
