National Tutoring Programme
Impress Education leads the way in creating calm, confident and capable students.
Our programmes of learning have been chosen by the Department of Education to deliver on behalf of the Government’s National Tutoring Programme (NTP). We can now deliver our interventions at heavily subsidised rates up to 60% boosting progress for those students who need it the most.

How schools receive their NTP Funding
The following information is taken from the funding allocations and schedules for 2022/23 on the DfE website.There is no need to apply for this funding and schools will automatically receive their funding in three stages across the year; September 2022, December 2022 and April 2023.
- All mainstream schools will receive £162 per pupil eligible for Pupil Premium
- The fund can be used to cover 60% of your tutoring costs, up to a maximum of £18 per hour
- Funding is allocated to provide each pupil with 15 hours of tutoring
- Funding must be spent on tutoring and any unspent funding will be clawed back at the end of the academic year
Schools are free to spend above or below £18 per hour, and may provide more or less than 15 hours per pupil. They’re also free to use the funding to support pupils who are not eligible for Pupil Premium. It is simply a way to allocate funding per school.
At the end of the school year, schools will be required to report on:
- Total hours of tutoring delivered
- Total cost
- Total pupils supported
Which pupils is the National Tutoring Programme funding for?
The NTP is available to pupils in Years 1-11 across all state schools.
Whilst the NTP bases the allocation of funding according to each school’s Pupil Premium numbers, schools are able to use the funding to support pupils in the way they see fit, including for pupils not eligible for Pupil Premium. However, the NTP recommends that schools prioritise their Pupil Premium cohorts for tuition sessions as research suggests these pupils have been most negatively impacted by the pandemic and resulting lockdowns and school closures.
What other funding is available to help pupils catch up?
As well as the NTP, schools also have the following funding options to provide catch up support to the pupils who need it most:
- Pupil Premium
- Recovery Premium
