As part of the recovery process from the pandemic-hit education sector in the UK, the government has decided to pour a whopping £1.4 billion into the education sector to help the students catch up on learning lost during the pandemic.

All the students, (young and children) are being offered up to 100 million hours of free tuition to boost education recovery. 

 

Out of the total £1.4 billion, about £1 billion will be spent to support up to 6 million, 15-hour tutoring courses for disadvantaged school children, along with the expansion of the 16-19 tuition fund, targeting some of the key subjects such as Maths and English.

 

Prime Minister Boris Johnson said:  

Young people have sacrificed so much over the last year and as we build back from the pandemic, we must make sure that no child is left behind.

This next step in our long-term catch up plan should give parents confidence that we will do everything we can to support children who have fallen behind and that every child will have the skills and knowledge they need to fulfil their potential

 

This investment is expected to transform the availability and approach to tuition in every school and college over the next three years. It makes sure that all disadvantaged children who are in need of support and extra tuition will be provided with immediate assistance and extra support. 

 

Education Recovery Commissioner Sir Kevan Collins said:

The pandemic has caused a huge disruption to the lives of England’s children.

Supporting every child to get back on track will require a sustained and comprehensive programme of support.

The investments in teaching quality and tutoring announced today offer evidence-based support to a significant number of our children and teachers. But more will be needed to meet the scale of the challenge.”
