Tutor Training

A Tutoring Qualification

For a number of years we asked tutors to prepare and teach a lesson as part of the application process, and we used this to make a decision about which tutors to take on. However, tutors develop their skill as they tutor, and we want to encourage contintual development and a desire to improve among all of our tutors for as long as they're tutoring.

Tutoring Standards offer a professional tutoring qualification which objectively assesses a tutor's ability and gives constructive feedback on how to improve. Taking this qualfication is the best measure of tutoring ability that we know of, but it's also a great learning tool so that you can develop as a tutor.

When to get your Professional Tutoring Certificate

Everyone has the option of an interview with us and, if successful, you can begin tutoring without taking Tutoring Standards' assessment. Once you have taught 30 lessons, we will offer to subsidise an assessment as part of your continuing development as a tutor.
