16-19 Tuition Fund

The coronavirus (COVID-19) 16 to 19 tuition fund for the 2022 to 2023 academic year is specifically allocated for schools, colleges and all other 16 to 19 providers to mitigate the disruption to learning arising from coronavirus (COVID-19). This fund is targeted at students in most need, offering small group tuition to recover lost learning.

The Island VI Form will ensure the funding allocation is used in accordance with the guidance: Coronavirus (COVID-19) 16 to 19 tuition fund guidance 2022 to 2023.

The funding will be used to support students whose learning has been disrupted due to the pandemic with a focus predominantly, but not exclusively, on GCSE Maths and English attainment. Learners who do not have Grade 5-9 in GCSE English and/or Maths at the end of KS4 can be supported by this fund. Students will be identified in line with the eligibility and additional flexibilities sections detailed in the guidance. Tuition delivery will be a maximum of 5 students at any one-time utilising qualified staff to help support their individual needs over and above the teaching timetable.

We will adopt a thorough approach to initial assessment, on an individual basis with each student, to carefully review grades on entry and to establish current gaps in knowledge & skills. Starting-point assessments will form part of this assessment and will help to identify eligible students who most need this support.
