Following the creation of The Tutors Association, we have become keen advocates of this organisation which aims to promote tutoring as an industry and introduce standards for those businesses operating within it. Under the energetic leadership of Tom Maher, they are in the process of setting out what they stand for and what they want to achieve. Whilst still embryonic they are seeing good growth in both corporate and independent tutor membership numbers.
Tutorhub stands at the vanguard of a new and rapidly growing segment of the tutoring market – online tutoring, and we have been working with other UK based online tutoring businesses to create a Code of Practice for businesses operating in the online market. Its objective is to set out business practice in the way these businesses operate with customers and students.
Under the auspices of The Tutors Association there are plans to conduct a survey into how the online tutoring market is evolving. Surveys like this are great at improving public awareness, and coming from an independent body such as the Tutors Association will carry weight in the media.
Finally, I was asked by BBC Radio Bristol talk on behalf of the Tutors Association in a discussion about educational reforms and going back to school on 1st September. If you would like to listen to it, please click the bar below.
