Why Join The Tutors’ Association?

The Tutors’ Association is the nonprofit professional membership body for the tuition industry and the supplementary education sector in the UK and beyond. We represent the profession as significant partners within the education landscape, building a positive perception of tutoring amongst parents, schools and wider society.

The Tutors’ Association is more than a professional body, we are a community for the tutoring profession – recognised by the UK Government. We provide opportunities for recognition, collaboration and development on behalf of our members, partners and other stakeholders.

We are the membership

The Tutors’ Association is led by a democratically elected board of directors from the membership and supported by a small operational team. Together, we get things done!


As a Not for Profit Professional Body, our membership rates are inexpensive, affordable and offer significant value for money. Find out more about our rates…
