National Tutoring Programme

Helping pupils and schools by offering them high quality educational support. 

What is NTP?

The National Tutoring Programme (NTP) supports schools by providing access to high-quality tutoring to help pupils whose education has been affected by the Covid-19 pandemic. Evidence shows that tutoring can boost progress by up to five months, with extensive evidence showing that tutoring is one of the most effective tools to support learning and accelerate pupil progress.

As part of the Education Recovery programme, the government has invested a further £1bn to support up to six million, 15-hour tutoring packages for pupils who need help. This support includes £222m to fund an extension to the 16 – 19 tutoring provision in addition to training and resources for the Nuffield Early Language Intervention (NELI) programme.

This website has been created to support schools to access the most appropriate tutoring support for their pupils' needs. The NTP includes access to three options for tutoring support: Tuition Partners, Academic Mentors and School-Led tutoring.


We are an approved tuition partner!

The whole team at Career Tree is thrilled that our ambitious proposal to the National Tutoring Programme has been agreed by the Education Endowment Foundation. The proven quality and impact of our services has been acknowledged and we could not be more delighted.


Tuition Partners can be engaged by schools to provide targeted support for pupils in a specific subject area in 15 hour blocks mostly in groups of three, although groups of two and 1:1 support is also available where required. Schools can select from a range of organisations who deliver either face-to-face or online tuition in their area and 70% of the cost is subsidised by the government.

Our Tuition Partner selection process for the new academic year has now closed. However, if you are still interested in applying as a Tuition Partner, then you can get in touch with us and we’ll notify you should another opportunity to register become available.

Schools across London, Luton and Birmingham can access our high-quality tutoring service for a fraction of the usual cost.
