Who is Study Mind?

Study Mind is an approved NTP Partner who work with hundreds of schools to provide online tuition for KS1-KS4 including for SEN.

We were chosen by the DfE due to:

3. Rigorous selection and training process (1 in 6 become tutors)

We have a team of high-quality tutors from top UK Universities (with enhanced DBS) who have gone through rigorous training and have achieved a minimum A/A* in the subject. We will match tutors to your needs and offer a free first lesson to ensure students are compatible.

How does the NTP work and what will it cost?

NTP covers 60% of the cost of tuition up to £162 per pupil (£10.80 per hour for 15 hours). The remaining 40% is covered by schools, commonly through their Pupil Premium Fund.

Most schools book a block of 15 hours per student. This allows you to use the lessons throughout the term and make full use of the £162 per pupil.

We know your school has your own needs based on your budget and financial situation. Importantly, any NTP funding leftover will be clawed back so you don’t want to miss out!

Book a 15 minute call with our NTP Manager to guide you on the best course of action – We can get you up and running within 2 weeks.

→What is the National Tutoring Programme?

The National Tutoring Programme (NTP) is a government-funded initiative in England that provides additional academic support to pupils in schools. The aim of the programme is to help students catch up on any learning they may have missed during the Covid-19 pandemic and to provide long-term support to those who need it.

→How does funding for NTP work?

State-funded schools will receive NTP funding over the course of the academic year 22/23 to deliver tuition to their pupils. The funding can be used to cover 60% of the cost of tutoring, with schools targeting the tutoring offer towards their pupil premium cohort and paying the remaining 40% of the cost using their Pupil Premium (PP) or other core school budgets
