16-19 TUITION FUND STATEMENT 2020-2021
COVID-19 Remote Learning
We are committed to supporting learners to access their Study Programme. This includes learners who may have to self-isolate or shield due to the Covid-19 pandemic. We are providing learners with Distance Learning packs alongside access to virtual sessions via Microsoft Teams. All learning activities are tailored to each learner and their individual outcomes.
Statement on the 16-19 Tuition Fund
The 16-19 Tuition Fund has been made available by the Education Skills Funding Agency to support learners who have had their learning affected by the coronavirus pandemic.
The purpose of this statement is to set out how Regent College will use the above funding to support learners where learning was disrupted in 2020/2021 due to coronavirus.
We are using the funding to provide:
- Additional hours of emotional, health and wellbeing support to help learners to manage their anxieties around returning to college
- Additional Job Coach staffing to support learners to return to their work placements when opened
- Additional staffing to support travel training for learners who have not used public transport during the lockdown periods
- Increasing the hours of some existing staff
The College is committed to ensuring the tuition fund is used in accordance with the Government’s Guidance on the 16 to 19 tuition fund by:
- Producing this statement setting out how the fund will be used to support the most disadvantaged learners
- Publishing this guidance on the College website
- Recording the use of the fund, including references to individual learner who receive support, the needs of those learners, the number of hours of tuition delivered and retain the evidence of the tuition provided
- Deliver the extra tuition and spend the allocated funds in the academic year 2020/21
- Notify the Education Skills Funding Agency (ESFA) of any underspend from the Fund for it to be reclaimed
