Tuition Fund

The 16 to 19 tuition fund 2021 to 2022 academic year

The purpose of this statement is to set out how Solihull Sixth Form College will utilise the 16-19 Tuition Fund in 2021-22. 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 departments in the College. Eligible students have been prioritised based on the published DfE criteria, including those who:

  • have not yet achieved a grade 4 in English and/or Maths.
  • have achieved a grade 4 in English and/or Maths and are from the 27% most economically disadvantaged backgrounds.

The 16-19 tuition fund will be used to provide direct tuition which is additional to already planned programmes of study for 2021-22. Tuition will be delivered one-to-one and in small groups of up to 5 students.

The main focus is on providing support for disadvantaged students who are struggling with gaps in literacy and numeracy arising from COVID-19, which is impacting on their achievement in their main study programme. Priority will be given to those disadvantaged students with SEND or High Needs who have been adversely impacted due to specific needs or disabilities.
