What is the National Tutoring Programme?

The National Tutoring Programme is a government scheme designed to help pupils who have fallen behind as a result of school closures during the COVID-19 pandemic. The scheme provides primary and secondary schools with funding for targeted academic support, delivered by trained and experienced tutors.

The funding covers 50% of the total cost of this support, and all schools will receive their funding for 2023/24 without having to ‘opt-in’.

  • Stretch your funding

    We understand that the pandemic has left schools with a lot of catch-up work to do, which is why we help you make your National Tutoring Programme funding go further. Our fixed hourly charge means more pupils can benefit from the programme without it costing your school a penny more. Book a meeting with one of our National Tutoring Programme specialists and let us help you make the most of your funding today.

    Access your funding

  • Our Tutors

    Unlike other tuition providers, all of our tutors are teachers that hold Qualified Teacher Status (QTS), meaning you get more expertise for your money. You can select teachers with specialised experience with certain year groups or subjects, meaning you can provide the most tailored support for your pupils. And, of course, holding QTS status means all our tutors are fully vetted and trained on Safeguarding and PREVENT.
