Welcome to The Tutors' Association
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
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.
Tutors and tutoring companies who comply with our Codes of Practice are welcome to apply to join us.
The criteria and fees for admission are detailed in our Membership Booklet.
