ESFA 16-19 Tuition Fund (2021-22)

Hampshire County Council

ESFA provided extra tuition funding to Hampshire Achieves to support small group tuition for 16 – 19 year old learners in English, maths, employability and personal skills and behaviours. We have prioritised this funding for those learners who have not achieved a grade 4 in English and/or maths and for those who come from disadvantaged backgrounds.

This funding is supporting learners on our Traineeship and Supported Internship courses.

Those in scope for this extra support have been identified and a range of activities are now in place, these include;

  • Online socials (small groups) held on MS Teams to support welfare and engagement – Functional Skills embedded through quizzes and online games etc. These also support learners wellbeing and health awareness needs
  • Additional 1:1 and small group support for their Functional Skills achievement. Digital skills assessment is an additional consideration, as is ensuring online safety
  • Additional classroom delivered career sessions – career education delivered in small groups and 1:1s where a level 7 Careers Advisor will deliver additional content to achieve positive progression to further study/work
  • Weekly additional face to face 1:1 welfare sessions with their nominated Skills Coaches.

This support is in addition to the young peoples’ planned programme hours. The teaching and support team are tracking, monitoring and keeping an active record of this activity.
