The Department for Education (DfE) launched NTP in academic year 2020 to 2021 to support schools and local authorities to provide tuition for their pupils. The programme is well-established, with the majority of state-funded schools in England now offering tutoring.

The department has published guidance setting out information for schools and local authorities on how to provide tuition for pupils through NTP in academic year 2023 to 2024.

The published conditions of grant set out the terms and conditions which schools and local authorities must follow.
