National Tutoring Programme

The National Tutoring Programme (NTP) is failing the students who need it the most

The facts:

  1. Less than half of students who received tuition through the NTP were classified as disadvantaged*, meaning that those who need the support the most did not receive it.
  2. 35% of students who signed up for the programme did not show up for tuition*, despite it being paid for.
  3. For those students who do attend, a significant proportion are not making the expected progress*.
  4. And most tutoring took place during lesson time, 26% of teachers have said that tuition led to pupils falling behind in lessons*.

According to the EEF, the NTP has a 0 impact rating for student progress*. 

Schools should seriously consider if the programme is delivering true value for money, and find a solution that does more, for less.
