COVID-19 Response for 20/21: 16-18 Tuition Fund

Young people across the country have experienced disruption to their education because of coronavirus. The Government has recognised that young people from vulnerable and disadvantaged backgrounds may be among those who have been most affected and to support this have allocated funds to schools and colleges. South Devon College will use the 16-19 tuition fund to provide small group tuition to students and groups of students who are in scope for this funding and who require additional teaching or support to get them back on track with their learning this year.

The fund will be used for small group (less than 5 students) and 1:1 tuition in English, Maths, academic and vocational learning for 16 to 19-year-old learners. This tuition will be in addition to the planned study programme hours. Tuition Support offered will be based on an individual need’s assessment, the identification of an individual starting point, clear learning goals, expectations and outcomes.
