As a result of Swinney's additional cuts to Councils, councils across Scotland are needing to find additional savings or revenue raising ideas. 

One of Stirling Council's proposals is CYE032 which is a 100% increase in Tuition Fees. This would make the service more expensive than private tuition for many, and would effectively kill off the service. 

The Council's own proposal also indicates that this proposal may not even raise any additional revenue as a result of this increase.

"There is a risk that some users will not use the service due to the incresed charges. Some might move to private tuition as a 1-1 approach. Others may struggle to pay increased fees and withdraw from the service. Either of these would negate any potential additional income."
