16-19 Tuition Fund Statement
Newcastle City Learning has received extra funding this year from the 16-19 Tuition Fund. This is one-off funding for the 2020 to 2021 academic year only. The fund is ring fenced for schools, colleges and all other 16-19 providers to mitigate the disruption to learning arising from coronavirus (COVID-19). We are using this funding to support small group tuition for eligible young learners, where COVID-19 has negatively impacted upon their progression.
We have delivered both English and maths sessions in small groups to our young learners to provide them with very targeted support to help them to identify their gaps in knowledge and to provide them with high levels of support to ensure that they are able to make good progress. In some vocational subjects we have also been able to provide small group teaching to allow less confident learners to re-engage with study and to develop core personal, social and employability skills.
