Membership is designed for Individual tutors, including both freelancers and those who work for companies, and Tutoring Companies, Study Centres, and Agencies in the UK or abroad.

International Members are welcome. Members not based in the UK agree that any complaint made against them will be dealt with in the UK under English Law.


Membership Requirements

DBS Check

Individuals working with children and / or vulnerable adults must have a current DBS check. 

Our recommendation is that they would have or apply for an Enhanced certificate and that it is less than one year old.

TTA is able to process checks on behalf of members who do not currently have one (processing fee is additional to the membership rate). The process has to be initiated by the member straight after membership approval.

Code of Professional Practice, Ethics and Child Protection  

Individual Members should adhere to the Code of Ethics and Corporate Members have a responsibility to promote regard for the Code of Ethics for tutors among those with whom they work. 

Both codes must be displayed at companies’ primary place of business, and communicated to their clients. Corporate members are responsible for monitoring whether tutors with whom they work honour these codes.

These are available to  download from the Members Resources area and they have to be signed and uploaded to their profile within four weeks of joining. 


All members are required to produce two suitable references, both or character and work experience and skills.  These can be from past employers or comments from past or current clients. 

References must be submitted within three months of joining.
