Addressing the need for standards as part of entry-level reform by creating a new framework for tutors

These standards have been developed by Myelin Academia in response to the unregulated nature of the tuition industry. As it stands there are no formal, consistent or standardised requirements for tutors to work within. This document provides a new framework for tutors & outlines their roles & responsibilities.

Certified Tutor Status FAQs

Myelin Academia courses are endorsed by an awarding organisation, which means our training and as on organisation we have been through a much more rigorous quality assurance process than more common alternative of offering CPD points. 

We are subject to annual internal and external quality assurance inspections by Training Qualifications UK to ensure our courses conform to high standards of educational expertise. TQUK are regulated by OFQUAL. 

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. Therefore, we urge you to read and digest the material in the pages that precede these. 
  2. APPLICATION (5 hrs) After your online training is complete, tutors are required to undertake five hours of tuition with a client. 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 Training Qualifications UK. 

The Guided Learning Hours for Level 3 in Applied Tutor Training 'PRESET' are set at 11-13hours in total.

6-8 hours are advised for the online component.

A further 5 hours for the applied practical hours in-situ with a client.
