City College Plymouth will identify small groups of up to five students to receive additional support. In some cases, it may be appropriate to have one-to-one sessions which will be especially relevant for students with SEND. Staff within faculty areas across the College will identify students following an individual needs assessment which will also meet the eligibility criteria. Tuition sessions will be delivered face-to-face, online or through a blended delivery model in line with national coronavirus guidelines.
Examples of some Tuition Fund sessions are as follows:
- academic study skills sessions – tailored support for students to develop their study skills so that they can successfully engage with curriculum content
- vocational programme support sessions – specifically designed to support students with the content of their main study programme and develop technical skills in practical areas
- English and maths support sessions – targeted identification of gaps in English and maths knowledge, whilst also incorporating pastoral support aimed at developing confidence, motivation and aspiration building
- exam preparation for GCSEs and functional skills – designed to equip our students with the knowledge and skills necessary to be successful in their examinations
- pastoral support – tailored guidance to enable students to overcome personal barriers and feel adequately supported to progress with their learning.
