Welcome to The Tutors' Association

The Tutors' Association is an industry-led initiative which seeks to achieve professional recognition for private tutors and to promote best practice in tutoring.

The Association aims to support tutors in their work, by investing in continuing professional development and accreditation, and by informing the public of what should be expected of a professional tutor.


The private tuition industry has burgeoned in the UK in recent years. Private tutors are utilised extensively by parents to supplement what is on offer through regular schooling and raise young people’s attainment and confidence.

Yet, this substantial body of educators has gone largely unrecognised.

The Tutors' Association seeks to promote tutoring as a viable profession in itself through raising the industry's profile and encouraging professional development.

Sign up

The Association launched on October 2013. We are now offering to practitioners and providers from across the supplementary education sector the opportunity take the lead in investing in quality assurance through signing up to join The Tutors' Association.

The criteria and fees for admission are detailed in our Membership Booklet.
