The 16 to 19 tuition fund is a £96 million one-off fund for the 2020 to 2021 academic year only. It is ring fenced funding for schools, colleges and all other 16 to 19 providers to support small group tuition for 16 to 19 students in English, ;aths, and other courses where learning has been disrupted. For example, vocational courses where assessments has been deferred because of lockdown.
The tuition fund is provided by the Department for Education as a direct contribution to address the impact of 'the disruption to learning' caused by the COVID-19 pandemic

Disadvantaged students and those with specific SEND will be prioritised in the allocation of the additional small group tuition, in line with the published DfE guidance.
