Your core training contains four content blocks and a safeguarding course, which takes around 10-15 hours to complete over three-to-four weeks. The content is all delivered virtually and involves some independent study as well as live Zoom sessions. Read an overview of your training programme below.

Tutor training FAQs

Before you can apply for assignments, you'll need to have completed each stage of your core training. Your programme will differ if you are a qualified teacher or not. Our team will support you through your induction so you can begin tutoring as soon as possible.

While completing your induction, our Recruitment Team will be completing DBS and reference checks. Please keep an eye out for emails from us that detail what you need to do to help with this.
