16-19 Tuition Fund Grant
The Education and Skills Funding Agency (ESF) has allocated Wakefield College additional funding for the 2020/21 academic year to provide support for learners that experienced particular disruption in their education during lockdown. In line with the ESFA conditions attached to this funding, we will be providing the following support:
- Additional small group ‘catch-up’ tuition in to enable those learners that have not achieved at least a grade 5 in GCSE English and/or maths to do so.
- Additional small group ‘catch-up’ tuition to learners on vocational study programmes that might benefit from additional support.
- The provision of additional tutorial and pastoral support to help learners that may be at risk of withdrawing from their study programme.
- The provision of physical and online learning materials and equipment to support eligible learners.
This support set out above will be directed at learners that do not yet have GCSE English and/or maths at Grade 5 or above, but will be prioritised for learners that do not yet have GCSE English and/or maths at Grade 4.
