We are engaging with local school leaders to deliver online or in-person catch-up tuition within schools in Bristol, South Gloucestershire and North Somerset. We offer lessons on a 1:3 and 1:6 ratio, over a block of 15 tutoring hours.

In the 2023 – 2024 academic year, schools that choose to take up tuition provision from Greenhouse Learning will have the costs subsidised by the Government at a 50% rate.

What is the National Tutoring Programme?

The National Tutoring Programme (NTP) is a Department for Education (DfE) initiative which seeks to supports schools by providing access to purchase subsidised high-quality tutoring.

The aim is to help pupils whose education has been affected by the Covid-19 pandemic, whilst providing a longer-term contribution towards closing the attainment gap.

How does it work?

State primary and secondary schools can access small group tuition on a 1:3 or 1:6 basis from us. Each group will be tutored over blocks of 15 hours. The subsidy to schools comes in three segments

  • School Led tutoring: You receive a grant automatically for 50% of the pupil premium students on your roll to receive tuition.
  • Tuition Partner tutoring: You choose from a list of 57 approved tuition partners and use the 50% subsidy from the DfE for each 15-hour block tuition programme delivered.
  • Academic Mentor tutoring: You employ a salaried member of staff (50% subsidised by DfE) to work alongside teachers to deliver tuition

Greenhouse Learning are an approved tuition partner and are able to help your school deliver tuition programmes on both the School-Led and Tuition Partner routes. We deliver academic tuition in all the subjects to school children of all ages and levels.

Why should school leaders look into this funding now?

Research from the Education Endowment Foundation shows that pupils can make 4-5 months of progress via an intensive programme of tuition.

If you are already using one of the tuition funding subsidy routes and are seeing great results, we recommend expanding the programme by making full use of the remaining routes.
