FE Tuition Fund Statement
Askham Bryan College is committed to ensuring that disruption to learning due to the Coronavirus (Covid-19) pandemic does not stop our students from fulfilling their potential. To assist in this, the Government has provided additional funding for schools, colleges and other 16-19 providers to help with the disruption to learning caused by Coronavirus.
This statement sets out how Askham Bryan College will utilise its 16-19 tuition fund allocation to support students who have been academically disadvantaged due to Coronavirus.
Askham Bryan College will provide additional small group tuition in English, Maths and/or vocational courses to students aged 16 to 19 who have been identified, or indeed identify themselves to take part in catch-up support sessions in addition to their normal timetabled hours.
To be eligible for this additional tuition you should be aged 16 to 19, currently studying a full time study programme and have not achieved a grade 4 or 5 in English and/or Maths or those who are from an economically disadvantaged background and would need catch-up support.
Students aged 19 to 24 who have an education, health and care plan (EHCP) are also eligible for support. To comply with the conditions laid out by the fund, the College will prioritise students who have not achieved a grade 4 in English and/or maths.
Our college will provide support across English and/or Maths for those students re-sitting in-year. This will be in the form of revision classes in the lead up to exams, as well as offering small group tuition to support ongoing curriculum content. These sessions will be in addition to their current English and/or Maths sessions.
We will also provide additional small group size vocational tuition to those students who through disruption to learning arising from the Coronavirus pandemic require catch up support sessions to ensure they are ready to fulfil their potential in either the workplace or in their continued journey in education. Askham Bryan College will assist where assessment has been deferred, access to practical skills development has been limited or classroom time disrupted due to Coronavirus.
To comply with the conditions laid out by the fund, students will be grouped in small classes to ensure maximum impact as a result of the additional catch-up sessions. These sessions will be led by staff recruited into the organisation, as well as current and existing staff where appropriate. These sessions will be in addition to the student’s normal timetabled hours and will aim to bridge the skills gap brought about by the disruption to learning due to Coronavirus.
Students will be allocated additional opportunities through their course managers, curriculum leads, and the English and Maths staff at the college.
Any student wishing to enquire about additional tuition should in the first instance approach their Course Manager or English and Maths Tutor.
