Ofsted review of catch up tutoring in 16 to 19 providers

Ofsted have carried out an independent review of the government’s National Tutoring Programme.

The programme was set up to provide additional, targeted financial support to the learners most affected by the pandemic.

The review focuses on tuition provided through the 16 to 19 tuition fund over 2 years, from September 2021. The report sets out the findings on 16 to 19 providers’ use of the tuition fund from the first phase of the study.

Ofsted found that:

“Generally, the government’s tutoring policy has been well received by providers. Across 16 to 19 providers, leaders, staff and learners were overwhelmingly positive about tutoring. Many suggested that tuition had re-engaged learners, increased their confidence and resilience, and changed their attitudes to learning. Some providers gave examples of progress based on solid formative assessment of learners receiving tuition.

However, most providers had not been delivering tuition for long enough to assess its impact on learners’ progress. Many providers acknowledged that they had not fully developed arrangements for overseeing and monitoring tuition.”
