National Tutors' Conference | 25 October | Royal Society, London


We are proud to announce that the Royal Society is the venue for our 4th National Tutors’ Conference on Friday, October 25th 2019. The Royal Society’s history harks back to 1660 and an ‘invisible college’ of natural philosophers and physicians. Today it is the UK’s national science academy with a Fellowship comprising some 1600 of the world’s most eminent scientists.

The Tutors’ Association as both an academic and professional body shares the learned society’s values of exploring knowledge, bringing people closer together, harnessing ideas, discussing important topics and engaging with the public about what we do. 


Our annual conference has become a centrepiece of the Association’s ambitious programme. Each year it has striven to bring together the diverse strands of our membership, to champion tutoring, change the conversation and to foster common understanding. Hundreds of delegates come together to discuss important topics within tutoring, to understand the vocabulary of the sector, and to become more aware of how we present ourselves in our role as tutors - to clients, students and those in the wider education landscape alike. 

The programme on the day, as ever, will seek to encourage growth, promote excellence, support members, create opportunities and establish stronger networks and greater interaction. Whether a tutor or tuition provider, you will leave with the confidence that you will be able to make an even greater impact on your own tutoring practice and with an enhanced ability to inspire the next generation of tutors and students alike.

As with our previous Conferences, a small selection of exhibitors - some of whom are proudly sponsoring the event -  will provide a wealth of information, services and materials of direct use to tutors.

Call for papers will open shortly.

What past attendees say

"It was my first conference and I must say it was excellent and I took a lot away from it."

"It was a wonderful and successful conference on all levels. I am happy to be a member with the Tutors' Association."

"Thanks for a really stimulating and insightful day... we enjoyed the conference a lot!"

 "The speakers I listened to were interesting and engaging and presented information that made me consider vital topics that might not necessarily be on my daily radar. It was also great to catch up with people I hadn't seen for a while. (And the lunch was lovely!)" 

"Thank you so much for hosting such a wonderful event on Tuesday.  We found it incredibly positive – and myself, on a personal level, both from a business point of view, but also for my own tutoring.  The fellow delegates and the one talk I managed to get to, were incredibly inspiring and I can’t wait to tutor tomorrow evening!"

"Thanks so much for having me at the conference yesterday! The prison education session was so inspiring! Congrats for a great conference too"
