The catch-up funding will be used to provide additional support and intervention sessions to small groups of learners to complement their timetabled sessions. This will include specific focus on key areas for development and support with online resources and assessments. The initial focus for Maths and English will be to support learners sitting the November GCSE exams, but will continue throughout the academic year. Vocational delivery areas of the college will utilise the funding throughout the year to facilitate activity to engage learners who are at risk of falling behind or who require additional support to ensure they make required progress. In the Animal Welfare department it will facilitate the ‘Stay Behind to Get Ahead’ programme of additional twilight sessions and the Sports department will use additional delivery to focus on supporting learners to develop research methods, calculations and statistical analysis.
