The National Tutoring Programme

Although the tutoring industry is booming, it is about to receive a further boost due to the National Tutoring Programme (NTP). This is the government’s response to the coronavirus pandemic and an attempt to close the attainment gap, particularly for disadvantaged students. The aim is to give state-funded primary and secondary schools access to high-quality subsidised tuition from an approved list of ‘Tuition Partners’, which Choice Home Tutoring has bid to become. The Tuition Partners will be announced at the end of October.

As part of the overall ‘catch-up plan’, the government is aiming to spend £1billion of which schools will directly receive a share of £650million. The other £350million will be devoted to funding the NTP of which some £76million is earmarked for Tuition Partners to deliver quality tuition over a range of subjects.

For us and our franchisees at Choice, this is really exciting news as it will hopefully help build further relationships with schools in our respective territories. It is also gratifying to see that there now exists a general acceptance, including among schools, that private tuition positively impacts students’ education. We already work with many schools and they have all been delighted with the personalised service we provide and the quality of the tuition we deliver. The bespoke nature of our service remains a major attraction for schools, as well as for parents, and is one of the reasons which has enabled us to achieve an excellent reputation within the tutoring industry.

For those families who can afford it, having a tutor has become the norm. We are therefore delighted and privileged to potentially be involved in the NTP and to be able to work with more disadvantaged families in an attempt to bridge the gap between the ‘haves’ and the ‘have nots’.
