Intensive tuition

Up to 300,000 pupils at risk of falling behind in English and maths will get one-to-one tuition this school year

Ed Balls, Schools Secretary, said that thousands of seven to 16-year-olds will get intensive bursts of 10 hours' one-to-one tuition with a qualified tutor to help get them back on track in the basics.

More than 25,000 one-to-one tutors have already registered with the Training and Development Agency for Schools since it launched its recruitment campaign in June - with the overall aim of reaching up to 100,000 by 201011.
