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. Evidenceshows 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.

The Tutor Trust state:
We launched ‘Tutor Trust Bradford’ in time for the academic year 2021-2022 in partnership with the University of Bradford and Morrisons Foundation. Bradford will be Tutor Trust’s fourth major city in the North of England, and in particular will build on our successful, six-year track record in neighbouring Leeds.
Bradford is the sixth-largest city in England and one of the most diverse, and it is also Britain’s youngest city in terms of the size of its school-age population. We are excited about bringing our mission of ‘transforming lives through tutoring’ to Bradford.
During 2020-21, we delivered purely online work with Bradford schools as a pilot, serving 375 pupils across ten primary and secondary schools. Now, we will start face-to-face tutoring with pupils in Bradford schools, which is what they say they really want and need.
We are hugely grateful to Morrisons Foundation for providing the funding we need to launch Tutor Trust in Bradford, where the company is headquartered. One of the Foundation’s Trustees, Guy Mason, commented:
"The pandemic has undoubtedly made it harder to bridge the attainment gap and we want to do all we can to support young people in the Foundation's home of Bradford. We are delighted to partner with Tutor Trust, who have an impressive track record of transforming young lives through tutoring. This donation promises to deliver a positive impact on pupils across the City in core subject areas. We're confident it will prove to have long-lasting benefits across Bradford."
And we are delighted to be working with the University of Bradford to recruit students and recent graduates as tutors.
Find out more about the benefits of tuition in our latest Impact Report. You can also read our case studies from schools we have worked with across the North in Greater Manchester, Leeds-Bradford and Merseyside.
