Competencies We have very high expectations of the tutors we recruit as we are determined to provide a high-quality service to the schools we work with. We require our tutors to have a minimum of an A/7 at GCSE in the subject you wish to tutor in if applying for Secondary school positions and a B/6 at GCSE in English and Maths if applying for Primary school positions. We accept equivalent and international qualifications so please still apply if this is relevant to you. We only select those candidates who we believe will be good role models as well as excellent tutors, so we always look at an applicant's wider experience. All tutors are subject to our rigorous recruitment methodology, which was developed in partnership with Teach First and PwC. The two key competencies we use to assess applicants are: Humility, Respect, and Empathy You will be working with a wide range of people from diverse backgrounds and will represent our organisation to headteachers, teachers, parents/carers and, most importantly, to pupils. Tutors need a non-judgemental, positive attitude and to demonstrate that they can quickly develop productive relationships with pupils and school staff. Planning, Organising & Problem solving As a Tutor Trust tutor, you will need to demonstrate professionalism as well as being able to manage your responsibilities and priorities. You will need to plan efficiently to meet deadlines and deliver tutoring successfully. It is essential that you keep the commitments initially made to pupils. We expect our tutors to reflect on their work and accurately evaluate the success of their tutoring so that pupils continue to make good progress.
