DBS Check Service We are happy to assist our individual members and a limited number of tutors working through our Corporate members to get and maintain their DBS clearances.
(Fee for DBS processing is additional to the Membership rate)
Due to the very high volume of requests from our Corporate members to process DBS applications for their Tutor’s, as a not for profit organisation, we have had to reconsider the boundaries of this benefit and have amended our policy as follows:
With effect from 1st October 2021 -for Corporate members we will process ID documents for 20 of their tutors, per annum from their renewal date, at no charge. (Please note, the DBS Check fees are still payable on Capita's platform). Additional applications will be charged at £5.00 each.
DBS applications for Corporate tutors who are TTA members in their own right, will continue to be processed free of charge.
You will no doubt have noticed that the £1.4bn funding announcement by the Department for Education (DfE) had tuition as the primary focus of the funding being provided. This includes additional funding for the National Tutoring Programme (NTP), the £579m School-Led Tutoring Fund and substantial funding for 16-19 tuition. The 16-19 funding is offered without any mandatory guidelines on what the funding must be spent on and we suspect that this will possibly be used to supplement existing budgets in most cases, rather than being used to provide professionally delivered tuition from external tutors. However, both the NTP and the School-Led Tutoring Fund may be of relevance to TTA members.
TTA intends to provide a facility to enable schools to post their requirements on our website. It’s a bit like a jobs board to which any of our members could then respond. The Schools have been given about £500m directly to spend on support for their pupils from September. This support will involve engaging supplementary staff, source special needs support and of course tutoring support.
We hope to enable schools to post their job/requirement directly, and members would then be able to respond to the schools directly. We hope this would be a benefit for members, but it does rely on schools themselves posting their tutor requirements through to TTA.
Many schools are grateful for the funding since it enables them to source tutors locally which is why tutors and tutoring companies are advised to approach the schools directly to offer their services. We are in the process of communicating with schools, but this is an immensely enormous undertaking and we ask you for your patience while we do this.
