The NTP is a Department for Education initiative that provides support to schools to help pupils whose education has been most affected by school closures.
This year, funding is going directly to schools, giving them greater flexibility over how they structure their tuition programmes, with funding expected to cover 60% of tuition costs. Groups can be anywhere between 1:1 and 1:6, but DfE guidance recommends tuition in groups of 1:3.
Qualified teachers for face-to-face tutoring
Long-term and ongoing support for tutors
Lower costs than traditional agencies
Online platform to match tutors to pupil needs
Ability to track attendance and pupil attainment
Tutor programmes facilitated by experts in education
Our transparent pricing for in-person tuition is the lowest of all tuition partners – £14 per hour per pupil for 1:3 tuition – falling well within the subsidy limit of £18/pupil/hour. This means that schools can save an average of £17 an hour: almost enough to support another student!
