Create a bespoke package for your school



This year, the government has announced some changes to the funding scheme, making it easier for schools to access tutors. As of September 2022, schools will have the freedom of picking their own private tutors and will be able to select external staff from a list of approved tuition partners, Affinity Workforce being one of those listed. 


We are helping schools make the most of this funding. As one of 43 partners on the programme, we can create a bespoke tutoring package based on your school’s funding and needs, supplying only the highest quality tutors. This option can take the pressure away from your school having to source and organise local resources that meet safeguarding and evaluation standards. 


NTP Funding



Schools currently have three funding pillars to use their tutoring subsidy either through an approved Tuition Partner, academic mentors or the ringfenced school-led tutoring grant.


As of September 2022, these funding routes will still apply. However, the NTP will provide tuition grants directly to schools, so they will no longer need to go through a central supplier to draw funds. Schools will have the freedom of picking their own private tutors and will be able to select external staff from a list of approved NTP tuition partners.


During the 2021/22 school year, the DfE covered 75% of the tutoring costs for each school. Under the new ruling, this will now change to 60%, meaning schools are required to pay the remaining 40% using other funding sources.

Hear from our tutors and customers 


“Affinity have been fantastic since I joined them in September 2023. I applied as an ESOL tutor and have had different assignments given to me from School placements to LAC centres. Most of the children have ECHPs in place and have different needs and abilities. My manager Kim Hinchliffe has been amazing! Very supportive, helpful and friendly! Any issues or concerns I have – Kim deals with them more or less instantly! I couldn’t ask for a better place of work! Would highly recommend to anyone wanting a tutoring role.”

“I have been working with Affinity as a tutor since September 2019. Kim Hinchliffe has been amazing throughout this time. She has always provided me with work that suits me in every way. Kim promised me regular work when I joined and in the last four years she has always fulfilled her promise. She goes out of her way for me for which I can’t thank her enough.”




– Maulana | Tutor

‘The agency was helpful in understanding the extremely complex system and providing suitable tutors. The tutors were friendly and flexible and quickly worked as part of our staff team. Some of our vulnerable pupils were given the opportunity to practice skills and to recover learning after COVID.”
