School-led tutoring in 2022/23

In 2022/23, your school will get your National Tutoring Programme (NTP) funding directly through the Education and Skills Funding Agency (ESFA) at school and academy level (this means if you're an academy in a MAT, your funding will go directly to you, rather than to your MAT first). Previously, the funding was paid through the ESFA as part of its scheduled payments to your school (academies) or LA (maintained schools). See more information in the DfE’s plans to simplify the NTP.

The school-led tutoring grant will cover 60% of the average cost of tutoring, based on a 15-hour tutoring package, at £18 per pupil, per hour, unit cost.
