The 16 to 19 Tuition Fund 2022 – 2023

Cohort Young people who have special educational needs and disabilities aged 19-24 and who have an EHC plan

We have 34 ESFA funded learners across 5 different pathways matched to primary SEND needs and learners personal aspirations.

These learners have low prior attainment and are following personalised RARPA programmes or accreditation ranging from Entry Level to Level 1. The majority of these learners are from disadvantaged backgrounds.

Although each learner has their own individualised outcome targets linked to the strands of Preparing for Adulthood (PfA), the opportunities they had to work towards their targets were greatly reduced due to the legacy of COVID when accessing the local community and employment providers. Quality Assurance mechanism’s show that targets across the strands of ‘employment’ and ‘community access’ showed the lowest gains. These are the areas we feel require additional interventions to help recover lost learning opportunities and greater community awareness.
