Thirty-two providers, most of them commercial businesses, have been selected to deliver the government’s National Tutoring Programme in its first year.
Education giant Pearson, charities The Brilliant Club and Tutor Trust, and prominent tutoring organisations MyTutor and Action Tutoring are among those chosen to provide subsidised tutoring to around 250,000 pupils at schools across England.
Also among the successful applicants is Schools Partnership Tutors, which was set up by the Unity Schools Partnership earlier this year to try to prevent the cash going to private firms.
However, 21 of the partners are for-profit organisations, while the remaining 11 are not-for-profit. The NTP said this reflected the applications, 62 per cent of which came from commercial organisations.
Schools will be able to search for the subsidised tuition partners and choose between a variety of models of tutoring, including in-person and online, from 10am today.
Sir Peter Lampl, founder and chair of the Sutton Trust and chair of the Education Endowment Foundation, said he was “delighted that schools will have access to tutoring from so many high-quality organisations”.
“For too long, low income pupils have not been able to afford tutoring. This is an important step in enabling them to access it.”
