Tuition Fund — Solihull Sixth Form College

Tuition Fund

The 16 to 19 tuition fund 2023 to 2024 academic year

The purpose of this statement is to set out how Solihull Sixth Form College will utilise the 16-19 Tuition Fund in 2023-24. The fund is allocated to colleges to mitigate the impact on learning and achievement arising from COVID-19.

The funding will be used to support students on Study Programmes, aged 16-19 across all Curriculum Areas in the College. The following students are eligible for tuition via the 16 to 19 tuition fund:

  • Students who have not yet achieved a grade 6 in GCSE English and/or Maths at age 16 and would need catch-up support.
  • Students from the 27% most economically deprived areas of the country (based on the index of multiple deprivation) and would need catch-up support.
  • Students who are economically disadvantaged who meet the 16 to 19 Bursary Fund Eligibility Criteria and would need catch-up support to reach their full potential, even where their prior attainment is high.

The 16-19 tuition fund will be used to provide direct tuition which is additional to already planned programmes of study for 2023-24. Tuition will be delivered one-to-one and in small groups of up to 5 students.
