'PRESET' Certified Tutor Status FAQs

Myelin Academia was the first to market in 2019 providing a competencies training for tutors, so we benefit from our experience as well as providing a weighted certification. Our courses are  endorsed by an awarding body, instead offering CPD points. This means that not only are we are a Recognised Centre for Learning, we are subject to annual quality assurance checks to make sure our courses conform to high standards of educational expertise. Being backed by an awarding body means greater credibility for our courses. 

Certification is a 2 STEP process:

  1. THEORY (between 6-8 hrs) There are 4 assessed units in the course. You are required to pass each of these in order to be eligible for a certificate. Therefore, we urge you to read and digest the material in the pages that precede these. 
  2. PRACTISE (5 hrs) On successful completion of all four assessments students are required to undertake five hours of tuition with a client in order to be eligible for your certificate. This is to provide you with an opportunity to implement your newly acquired skill in a real-life setting. These hours will be logged by your agency and fed back to Myelin Academia. Once we have confirmation of these hours from your tuition agency, it will trigger your certificate to be generated from our awarding body.

PRESET online training is self-guided and designed to take between 6-8hrs, PLUS and additional 5hrs of practical work with a client. In total, this equates to 11-13 hrs.
