Bury College has received 16-19 Tuition Fund support for 2020/21, to help mitigate the disruption to learning arising from coronavirus (COVID-19).

Funding is to enable small group tuition for 16-19-year-old students in English, maths, and other courses where learning has been disrupted.

These groups will include no more than five students and these learners will be selected either on an individual basis where there are pastoral and wellbeing gaps that are creating barriers to learning or through curriculum areas where the impact of COVID-19 has identified gaps in learning.

Bury College will focus activities where they will achieve greatest difference, e.g. by targeting those students working towards grade 5 in GCSE English and/or Mathematics.

Bury College will develop and deliver a range of activities to students across the year, including:

  • Identifying any particular needs to support, e.g. through completion of individual Health and Wellbeing Fact files
  • Providing additional 1:2:1 sessions with students, e.g. with Progress Managers
  • Introduction of a Personalised Learning Centre, to allow for individual / small group learning / catch-up sessions
  • Providing additional small group English and maths catch-up / revision classes / exam preparation / tutorials
  • Providing additional small group Vocational sessions, e.g. to support catch-up, re-cap, consolidation
  • Providing additional online resources that students can access at times convenient to them, e.g. on areas such as mental health and wellbeing
  • By expanding the college’s Positive Future programme, which seeks to develop key study, employability and transferrable skills to assist students progress to a positive destination
