We are very pleased to have been provisionally approved for the second year as a National Tutoring Programme provider.

Last year we worked with 902 students in 32 schools across the country through the National Tutoring Programme – including London, the West Midlands, East Midlands and Yorkshire. 

About the National Tutoring Programme

The National Tutoring Programme came into being in the early months of the first lockdown, when the lasting impact of school closures was being highlighted by many in the education sector. Evidence suggested that disadvantaged pupils had been particularly negatively impacted by lockdowns

The programme was designed by a collaboration of five charities – the Education Endowment Foundation, Sutton Trust, Impetus, Nesta and Teach First – all working in partnership with the Department for Education. Its aim is to support schools by providing a sustained response to the COVID-19 pandemic and to provide a longer-term contribution to closing the attainment gap.

The Access Project was one of 33 tuition partners selected in December 2020. Collectively the tuition partners have enrolled over 250,000 pupils onto the programme – making inroads in narrowing the attainment gap.

Provisionally approved for a second year

Nathan Sansom, Chief Executive, said: “We are pleased to say that our bid to participate in the National Tutoring Programme for next year has met the quality standards. We are still in contract negotiations with Randstad and hope to be approved soon.”
