National Tutoring Programme Hits 1M Mark

The government has announced that one million courses have been started by children across the country through the National tutoring programme.

It is estimated that approximately 532,000 of these courses were provided through the School-led tutoring route, which provides funding directly to schools.

This direct funding is believed to be giving more schools the autonomy and support to deliver high-quality tutoring to as many children and young people as possible.

The programme remains on track to deliver the ambitious target of 2 million courses overall this academic year.

Speaking at ASCL, Nadhim Zahawi, Education Secretary, said:

It’s important to step back and look at what we’ve achieved with the National tutoring programme.

Tutoring used to be something that was the preserve of only a fortunate few.

Thanks to this government, today it’s benefitting all children who want it and need it, from Bristol to Blackpool and Newquay to Newcastle, helping them realise their potential.

I am proud to announce that more than one million tutoring courses have been delivered since we rolled out this programme last year.

I hope you will agree with me that what we are doing together on tutoring is an invaluable addition to our education system, and I am continuing to look at how we can make sure it is having as big an impact as possible.

In addition to the estimated 532,000 courses that have started through the School-led route this year, 114,000 starts have been made on courses through Tuition partners and an estimated 74,000 pupils have started packages through the Academic mentor pillar of the programme.

The government is working closely with Randstad and the sector to make sure these numbers continue to rise, and tutoring continues to reach the students who need it most.

311,000 courses were delivered in the 2020 to 2021 academic year.

The government intends to continue building on the success of the National tutoring programme this year, in particular the School-led route.
