For the academic year 2021 to 22 the Department for Education have provided additional funds for the purpose of supporting learners whose learning has been disrupted as result of the Covid 19 pandemic.
Morley College will be providing additional learning hours to main programme provision, to support 16 to 19 year old learners to catch up and close any gaps in their learning and achieve their full potential.
Students eligible for the 16 to 19 Tuition Fund
Who are the students in scope?
- All students aged 16 to 19 who have not yet achieved a grade 4 or 5 in English and/or maths.
- Students who have a grade 4 or above in English and/or maths but are from an economically disadvantaged background and need additional tuition to achieve their full potential
- Eligible students with special educational needs and disabilities
- Students with an Education Health Care Plan up to the age of 24, enrolled on a Study Programme
- Students on vocational qualifications (who fall into one of the first 4 categories above) who need extra support and tuition to develop their vocational or academic skills
How is Morley College using this fund?
- Small group sessions in GCSE and Functional Skills English and maths to support revisions and consolidation of skills
- Skills and knowledge building workshops for eligible learners to focus on study skills
- Support for the development of technical skills on vocational programmes
- Work ready skills for students whose qualification route includes a ‘licence to practise’ element
- Students with EHCPs to support learners to develop study, vocational and technical skills.
The funds will be ring fenced to support the above activity.
Our Additional Learning Support (ALS) team will support by closely monitoring the progress of students with identified support needs, including those with an Education Health and Care Plans (EHCP).
We will do this with continuous reviews of the level of support a student receives to determine if a student would benefit from increased one-to-one support. Support will also include out of class sessions to complement any in-class sessions. The ALS team has a flexible mode of delivery for support. Students can choose in-person or online delivery for their support sessions.
