An application under the home tuition grant scheme for the child referred to by the Deputy was received by my Department on the 5th September 2019 and a decision letter issued to the parent/guardian on the 13th September 2019.

While the Home Tuition application form outlines that it may take the Department up to 15 working days to process home tuition applications, the Department is prioritising the processing of Home Tuition applications with a view to processing completed applications within 7 working days.
