Additional activities by the fund:
In addition to general activities supported by the fund, for eligible SEND students and those with EHC plans aged 19 to 24, the fund can also be used to provide pastoral support including mental health and wellbeing.
Institutions should have regard to the needs of SEND students, particularly where they have experienced additional disruption to learning because of their specific needs and disabilities. Institutions may choose to use this funding to support eligible learners with SEND to catch up on vocational and academic skills, and skills and learning that are important for their preparation for adulthood.
All departments must refer to the list of students who are eligible to receive the Tuition-Fund.
All departments using the tuition-fund must record in a register who attended the intervention and the date of when it took place.
All departments will refer to both summative and in class assessments to determine the type of intervention that is required for students.
