I'm still stuck!


  • Hi, do we need to complete the school led tutoring field for the Autumn 2021 census if we're not starting the tutoring until Jan 2022? Just put future dates in? Or leave til spring census?



  • Hi Diana, you'll need to record eligibility for this type of funding, even if you haven't begun the actual tutoring yet. We'd always recommend putting in data for anything you have the information on now.
