Welcome to The Tutors' Association

The Tutors' Association was launched in October 2013. Central to our Mission, Vison 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 TTA 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


Recognition


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.
