About the Supplementary Education Fund

Young Camden Foundation and John Lyon’s Charity are delighted to launch for a fourth consecutive year the Supplementary Education Fund 2022.

This fund is designed to support out of schools settings attached to organisations and/or supplementary schools in Camden to provide high quality educational programmes. YCF will support extra-curricular educational activities that are accessible, fun and engaging whilst ensuring the safeguarding of children and young people.

YCF looks for projects that invest in the training and capacity building of the people delivering the activities to improve governance, management and delivery by signing up to the National Resource Centre for Supplementary Education (NRCSE) and pursuing the quality mark

Young Camden Foundation invites applications from supplementary schools and other organisations and out-of-school settings based in Camden who are able to deliver and commit to:

  • Core Curriculum Subjects– an emphasis on the provision of core thematic learning to children and young people for example – extracurricular lessons, homework support, or weekend classes - in at least one or more of the following subjects: English, Mathematics and Science.
  • Work towards or achieving a Quality Mark – achieved or in the process of achieving the National Resource Centre for Supplementary Education (NRCSE) Quality Mark or another relevant educational quality mark.

Applications must demonstrate the following outcomes:

  1. Children and young people will have increased confidence in at least one core subject: Maths, English, Science
  2. Children and young people will have access to new or existent activities either face-to-face or online.

In addition, YCF encourages collaborative work with other supplementary schools to share lessons learnt and further improve delivery (for example, attending the Camden Supplementary Schools Forum or meeting with other similar projects to raise and improve standards). This network is coordinated jointly by Camden Council, NRCSE and YCF.

The idea of the supplementary education fund is to raise aspirations on the young people and improving their confidence and self-esteem.

Applications are now open - deadline 5 july 2o22
