The 16 to 19 Tuition Fund

21/22 The 16 to 19 Tuition Fund

The 16-19 tuition fund is a funding allocation for 21 – 22 academic year. The fund is being provided to support those who have had their education disrupted due to COVID-19.

This support is available to students on a 16 to 19 study programme who have not achieved a grade 5 in English and/or Maths, although the tuition is not limited to these subjects.

DCG will be offering regular catch up session for students who achieved a grade 4 or below in their GCSE English and/or maths. These catch up sessions will vary depending on the needs of the individual students. We will also be providing catch up sessions and 1:1 for vocational and academic subjects including students with grade 5 and below.

Catch up sessions:

Working with a teacher, either one-to-one or in small groups.

Support is being prioritised where students will benefit most from small group teaching in addition to planned timetable hours.

These sessions may take place in the morning, during lunch, at the end of the college day, or on a Saturday morning.

Sessions may be online or face-to-face.

We have recruited more teachers to increase capacity for these sessions.

We have recruited digital tutors to increase students support with accessing learning platforms.

We are exploring different options of working with third party providers.
