In July 2020, the Department for Education announced the catch-up premium, a £1 billion funding pot to support children and young people to catch up. This includes a one-off universal £650 million catch-up premium for the 2020 to 2021 academic year to ensure that schools have the support they need to help all pupils make up for lost teaching time.

In the ‘Use of funds’ section the DfE refer to two Education Endowment Foundation (EEF) guidance document to support schools to make best use of this funding.

1. Covid-19 support guide for schools

In both guidance documents it emphasises the importance of professional development, stating:

Ensuring every teacher is supported and prepared for the new year is essential to achieving the best outcomes for pupils. Providing opportunities for professional development—for example, to support curriculum planning or focused training on the effective use of technology—is likely to be valuable.

Almost all schools will also have made significant adjustments to organisational and logistical aspects of school life. Ensuring teachers have training and support to adjust to these changes is likely to improve the quality of teaching as all pupils return to school.

The National College team have worked tirelessly over the summer to develop a professional development catch-up programme for our members that directly aligns to this guidance. In this document you will find a selection of our webinars and video courses aligned to the key recommendations in the EEF guidance designed to support your catch-up programme.
