National Tutoring Programme SchoolLed Grant

As an NTP Tuition Partner, Protocol Education is ready to help you to close attainment gaps with high-impact, small-group tutoring.


How is the NTP different in year 3?

From 2022, all NTP funding will be paid directly to schools. The new model means that schools have a much greater degree of freedom than in previous years. You can use your funding to hire the staff you think would best suit your pupils’ needs.

How can NTP funding be used?

NTP funding can only be spent on staffing costs. Schools have flexibility in their choice of tutors, but those without Qualified Teacher Status or over two years of experience in their subject will need to take an 11-hour training course. Protocol Education can help you get the best value out of your funding. Our army of experienced, fully-qualified tutors are ready to step in at a moment's notice to bring your underperforming pupils back up to speed.





Why Protocol Education is the right partner for your school

Protocol Education has been an NTP Tuition Partner from day one. We have worked with schools to make the programme work for them. We have trained thousands of tutors and have available staff on hand, across the country. We understand the funding structures and can help you make it go further.

NTP funding cannot be used to pay for diagnostic tools, room hire, equipment, laptops, transport, stationery and recordkeeping etc. it must be used for tuition.

The funding covers 60 per cent of the “expected cost” for locally sourced tutoring, based on “average costs of tutoring”. Schools are expected to cover the remaining 40 per cent themselves. Working with Protocol Education, we can help you use flexible staffing in a way that minimises additional costs for you while maximising the number of pupils who can benefit from tuition.
