What does being a member of the TTA mean?

Becoming a member of The Tutors' Association signifies becoming part of the only membership body for professional tutors in the UK.

There are three significant new initiatives that we’ve recently put in place to help you as a Tutor/ Tutoring company gain business, and further enhance your skill set:

This is a facility where tutoring job opportunities are posted by Tutors and Tutoring Companies alike. It’s a direct route to new business opportunities.

In response to a growing number of requests from the public, our Directory of Members is searchable by anyone seeking a Tutor or Tutoring Company. They can search by subject, level, and location and then contact you directly about assignments. This is a direct route to more enquiries and more business.

We have launched a comprehensive free-to-members CPD platform and learning management system. This currently contains more than 50 courses across topics as diverse as tutoring SEND students, latest advances in pedagogy and marketing advice on how to grow your business. New courses will be added regularly.

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 Checks Direct’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.
