National Tutoring Programme
Skipton Builders, who are part of the MME group, have been chosen as a DfE-Approved provider for the National Tutoring Programme. This programme is exclusive to schools and is done through subject teachers, so parents can not enrol their children themselves. MME has NTP tutoring available for science, english and maths. Although this is currently targeted at GCSE aged students, it may be expanded in the coming months. If you think your child may need extra support that will be fully funded by their school, please ask their school about having MME as a provider.
The questions listed below are frequent things that students, parents and teachers ask about the National Tutoring Programme.

How does the NTP funding work?
The funding for the NTP is allocated for each Pupil Premium student, at £162 per pupil. The money can be spent on any students. The funding is sent 3 times annually in September, December and April. The amount available to claim is 60% of the tuition cost up to £18 per hour per student.
Is the NTP tuition online or in person and is it in groups?
Depending on which option you think might be best for you, there are different options at different costs. In most cases, in-person 1-2-1 tuition is the most expensive option.
