We are delighted to be part of the NTP (National Tutoring Programme) which was announced on Monday 2nd November.
The programme has received a great deal of interest with many schools already signed up for a January start. In partnership with Fischer Family Trust and Operam we are offering schools trained tutors to deliver TWL (Tutoring with the Lightning Squad) to struggling readers and those most affected by the pandemic. SfA will provide all training and ongoing CPD and the project is 75% subsidised* by the government which makes it an attractive and affordable catch up programme. All our schools will also be able to keep TWL after the six week programme finishes and we will train school staff to continue to use it making this a sustainable model.

* Typically NTP pays £6600 and schools pay £2200 for a FULL TIME tutor for 6 weeks which means that 40 children can be tutored daily
