Hi everyone, if you have any questions please select 'all panellists and attendees' in the chat
Catherine Sezen
22:16
Any questions or thoughts about what you might be doing at your college?
Laura Lavender
26:35
A standardised model that we can adapt to individual providers' needs
Catherine Sezen
27:02
What do others think?
Laura Lavender
31:35
Could adapt RARPA models to deomonstrate progress in different subjects
Jennifer Eastham
31:36
do we know when the further guidance is due out?
Catherine Sezen
33:05
We can ask about further guidance Jennifer
Jenny Craig

We are initially looking at something very similar to NCG in terms of the four pronged approach. Early thinking about using trained instructors/study coaches etc.. to provide additional support to small groups of learners based on enhanced initial diagnostic assessment to identify specific need.
Catherine Sezen
33:22
Thanks for letting us know Jenny
Diane Thurston
34:39
Yes,Jenny - we are also working on enhanced IA and running training for teachers on this from next week.
Jenny Craig
36:10
Does anyone know whether there are any specific requirements for number of hours additional support that we need to provide?
Phaedra Tanghe
40:06
great ideas re E&M, has anyone looked at students with SEND? and/or EHCP
Catherine Sezen
41:00
Good question Phaedra. I will ask the panellists to comment.
Laura Lavender
41:34
I was thinking about potentially some community based projects for young people with SEND. Have an employer sponsor and use the funding the give some key staff the time to lead the projects on different topics that benefit the local area and build relationships with employers. Help re-build confidence lost during lockdown/shielding and encourage motivation and progression towards Preparing for Adulthood outcomes
Neil Borg-Olivier
42:15
We have had a clear steer from AoC that 'the same hour cannot be funded twice', which we took to mean that any funded activity must take place in addition to the 600 planned learning hours already funded. It appears that not all providers are taking this approach - some clarity on this would be useful
Laura Lavender
42:22
Thinking of really innovative projects that lead to students becoming excited about learning again
Laura Lavender
43:40
An example - a group of students work with local CEO to develop disability awareness and deliver a strategy to build EDI in their org. Build real life skills in E&M, digital, enterprise etc
Jenny Craig
47:59
We have received our opt in letter
Phaedra Tanghe

Plumpton college: no letter as yet
Neil Borg-Olivier

Thank you for the response on my earlier question. It does still appear that there are different interpretations of 'additional hours' in the group. If learners are doing hours adiditonal to the hours they would normally do on a given day (e.g. lunchtime), would this be funded through the 16-19 tuition fund, even if the total planned hours for that learner remained between 540-600?
Laura Lavender
52:22
The funding is to allow Colleges to deliver small group sessions that build skills in M&E and any other skills now lacking due to Covid?
Laura Lavender
52:31
Just double checking I've understood
Jenny Craig
52:59
That is really helpful Jane - thank you
Geoff Osborne
53:46
My understanding is that the money should be used for additional tutoring in Maths, English or any other programme where learning have been disrupted and deferred. Can we use the funding for non academic teaching or support staff. eg attendance officers?
Laura Lavender
54:24
And that tutoring can be carried out through different methods not just additional cassroom sessions?
Andrew Chinn
54:28
Many colleges have been offering small group additional tutoring for years. The problem is getting learners to attend additional classes. Can the funding be used to offer 'rewards' to encourage learners to attend?
Geoff Osborne
55:06
It seems like the accountability will be in recorded deliver time.
Helena Thomas
01:01:40
we haven't received a letter from the dfe
Jennifer Eastham
01:04:50
you have to get it off the portal
Iain Wolloff
01:05:23
The letter is accessed through the ESFA Information Exchange
Geoff Osborne
01:06:04
The guidance suggests that best practice is a group of 3. That's £450. That will buy approx 18 hours of teacher tuition and slightly more for support staff. I'm not sure that's enough to bridge the gap.
Phaedra Tanghe
01:07:11
