The 16 to 19 Tuition Fund – 2021 to 2022 Academic Year

The 16-19 tuition fund is ring-fenced funding for schools, colleges and other 16 to 19 institutions to mitigate the disruption to learning arising from coronavirus (COVID-19).

The funding is to support small group tuition for students aged 16 to 19 in English, maths and other subjects that have been disrupted. Students aged 19 to 24 who have an education, health and care (EHC) plan are also eligible for support.

Support will be provided by putting on additional English, maths and digital booster sessions, exam preparation classes, masterclasses, study skills support sessions and drop-in support sessions. Additional practical skills development workshops will be provided for those students whose assessments were deferred or delayed or who will benefit from additional opportunities to improve their practical skills.

Oldham College will support students individually, in small groups of up to five students and in exceptional circumstances, in groups of up to seven. This tuition will be in addition to the planned programme of study hours already timetabled for 2021/22.

The college has selected students who have not achieved a grade 4 in English and/or maths, those students with an EHC plan and those students with special educational needs and disabilities (SEND) whose learning was significantly disrupted and need to catch up on their preparation for adulthood. The additional support will also be targeted at our students who are from an economically disadvantaged background and need extra support. 73% of our students meet this category.

We will ensure that funding reaches those students who most need extra support by ongoing assessment to establish gaps in knowledge, skills and behaviour and personal development. The college’s progress tracking system will be used to evidence initial assessment and planned support.
