16 -19 SMALL GROUP TUITION FUND

The Building Crafts College commits to using the small group tuition funding that it has been given to provide maths and English and vocational support to mitigate against the impact of the pandemic on our study programme students. Sessions will be limited to three to five students per group and will be above and beyond normal timetabled hours. Students will be prioritised for small group tuition based on the guidance released by the Education and Skills Funding Agency (ESFA). The full guidance can be accessed here: https://www.gov.uk/guidance/16-to-19-funding-16-to-19-tuition-fund

Maths and English catch-up support sessions will be prioritised for those students:

  • who have not achieved a grade 4 in English and/or maths
  • with an Education, Health and Care (EHC) Plan
  • who will benefit most from small group tuition

Vocational support sessions including personal development and study skills support will be prioritised for those students:

  • where assessment has been deferred because of lockdown
  • with an Education, Health and Care (EHC) Plan
  • on study programmes where learning and skills development have been disrupted
  • who have not achieved a grade 4 in English and/or maths

If our funding allocation allows, support may also be provided for those students who have achieved a grade 4 in GCSE maths and/or English by age 16.
