The Tutors' Association is the professional body for tutoring and wider supplementary education sector in the UK. Launched in 2013 it now has over 600 members. Of these 150 are Corporate Members representing some 20,000 tutors throughout the UK. Central to our Mission, Vision and Values

is to represent tutoring and the supplementary education sector and become the ‘go to’ resource for tutors, the public, the media, schools and government.

The TA has three main purposes:

To create a community for members of the tutoring profession, where they can:

  • Exchange knowledge and experience

  • Get access to information and services that assist with their day-to-day work

  • Provide mutual support and encouragement

To provide reassurance to parents that the tutor they have selected:

  • Has committed to professional standards by signing up to a code of conduct

  • Presents no known risk to their child by having been successfully DBS checked

  • Has proven their competence by providing testamentary evidence of the successful completion of tutorial engagements

To provide a unified and coherent voice for the tutoring profession so that it can:

  • Engage constructively with all the other stakeholders in the provision of education

  • Help ensure that the profession is perceived accurately and positively

  • Create mutually beneficial partnerships within the wider educational landscape

Individuals and Parents seeking a Tutor:

The Association is the professional body for the Tutoring Profession and not a tutoring agency. We do not run a service that finds tutors for individuals. However we do have the Members Register

of Tutors and Tutoring Companies. This can be checked to see whether the Tutor or Tutoring Company of your choice is a registered member.

Office Opening Hours:

The Association's Normal Office hours are 10.00am to 5.00pm Monday to Friday.

In recent years, tutoring and supplementary education have become increasingly popular both in the UK and globally. In the UK alone, many hundreds of thousands of people are employed as tutors.

Schools, pupils and parents are increasingly working more closely with tutors to help raise pupils’ attainment and confidence. Yet the role of tutors and supplementary educators has gone largely unrecognised.

The Tutors' Association seeks to change that and raise the sector’s profile by promoting tutoring as a viable profession and encouraging professional development.
