The NTP will run for a minimum of one academic year.  Currently, it is scheduled to finish in July 2021. 

However, many Education experts strongly believe that the NTP should be a three-year project.  As an active member of the Fair Education Alliance, Tutor Trust campaigned for the National Tutoring Programme and we welcomed the Prime Minister’s announcement in June. Now, we urge Mr Johnson to follow the logic of the evidence and of his own commitment to ‘levelling up’, and to fund the NTP for a further two years.

It is possible that the Government will announce this extra funding later in November through the Comprehensive Spending Review.
