Tutor screening

Fleet Tutors follows a rigid framework for registering all of its private tutors.

Our tutor support team conducts a number of checks on every single tutor before they can successfully register with us. Around 50% of our applicants are turned away as they don’t reach our requirements; this ensures our clients will always receive an experienced, highly educated tutor. All tutors must hold a current Enhanced CRB that is less than 3 years old, before they are fully registered.

Below is the framework all tutors go through:

This initial discussion enables our tutor support team to establish what qualifications the tutor holds and what specific tuition experience they have. Fleet Tutors requires all tutors to hold a degree classed at 2.1 or higher and/or have Qualified Teacher Status (QTS). All tutors must have up to date knowledge of the curriculum and this is highlighted during the interview. They are also able to ensure the tutor has a real passion for helping students achieve their potential. If the tutor is successful at this stage they are sent registration forms.

Documents checked
Once the registration forms have been received the tutors’ personal details are double checked. The tutor support team also receives copies of the tutors’ passport, degree certificates, CV and current Enhanced CRB; if they do not hold an Enhanced CRB an application is made. All of the documents are inspected and if they reach our requirements the tutors’ work referee and character referee are contacted.

Enhanced CRB
All of our private tutors hold Enhanced Criminal Record Bureau Disclosures (CRBs), or Enhanced Disclosure Scotland’s which we check very closely. The Criminal Records Bureau (CRB) is an executive agency of the Home Office which vets applications for people who want to work with children and vulnerable people.

References checked
The tutor support team assesses two references for every tutor; one work reference and one character reference. Many of the work referees have worked with the tutor in a teaching environment so they can provide us with a valuable insight in to the way the tutor works with children. The character referee can also help us determine whether a tutor is suitable to work with children due to their characteristics. If the references reach our standards the tutors’ profile is double checked and then made available to the private client department to match up with clients.

Ongoing monitoring
At Fleet Tutors, our screening process is continuous; once tutors are registered with us we monitor the progress of all ongoing tuition to make sure it is a success. If any step is not satisfactory then we do not register or retain the tutor. We work with the client and the tutor so if any concerns arise we can put a new tutor in place, if necessary. Fleet Tutors advise all clients to submit a tutor feedback form in order to help us keep track of current tuition and ensure the tutors are reaching our high standards.
