The National Tutoring Programme (NTP) provides primary and secondary schools with funding to spend on targeted academic support, delivered by trained and experienced tutors and mentors.
There are 3 routes to providing subsidised tuition:
- academic mentors – full-time, in-house staff members employed to provide intensive support to pupils who need it
- tuition partners – tutors recruited by external tutoring organisations quality-assured by DfE
- school-led tutoring – members of a school’s own personnel, either currently employed or specifically engaged for this purpose, including retired, returning or supply teachers, support staff, and others
