National Tutoring Programme
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 three routes to providing subsidised tuition:
- academic mentors – full-time, in-house staff members employed to provide intensive support to students who need it;
- tuition partners – tutors recruited by external tutoring organisations quality-assured by the Department for Education;
- academy-led tutoring – members of the academy’s own personnel, either currently employed or specifically engaged for this purpose, including retired, returning or supply teachers, support staff, and others.
