National Tutoring Programme: 
Poorest pupils can enrol for catch-up tuition
Following the most recent lockdown announcement from the government, the Department of Education has tried to assure schools and parents that the hardest hit pupils will receive catch-up tuition after the National Tutoring Programme (NTP) launched today.

The government announced in June that it would spend £1 billion on catch-up schemes, with £650 million to be divided between schools to pay for catch-up activities and £350 million for the NTP in 2020-21.The programme, which opened for applications today at 10am, is limited to 250,000 places. The cap on numbers has been met with some criticism, with many believing that these efforts are too little too late. In order to find tutoring for your school, follow this link.

Since our last newsletter, London Higher - AccessHE's parent company - welcomed its new CEO: Dr Diana Beech. Diana marked her arrival with a guest blog published on the London Higher website, where she drilled down into the complex metrics behind young Londoner's progression into HE.
