'PRESET' Certified Tutor Status FAQs

Myelin Academia courses are endorsed by an awarding organisation, instead of offering CPD points. 

Most importantly, this means we can verify the authenticity of a tutor's certification. As a recognised Centre for Learning, we are subject to internal and external quality assurance inspections by Training Qualifications UK to ensure our courses conform to high  standards of educational expertise.

In contrast, most other training providers offer CPD points. There is no centralised system or awarding body to verify or authenticate CPD points, rather it is the responsibility of the individual to track and record them accurately and honestly. 

As such, this gives greater credibility to 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.

If you are affiliated with an agency: If you are training through an agency, they will arrange this when they receive your course confirmation email. 

If you are unaffiliated with an agency: If you are unaffiliated with an agency, we can put you in touch with one who will help find you a client and confirm your practical hours. Please notify us that you are an unaffiliated tutor by emailing us at [email protected] so we can put you in touch with an agency, or alternatively get in touch with one of our affiliate agencies.

As part of our go-green initiative, our default setting it to provide e-certificates, which will be emailed to you. However, you can request a hardcopy if you prefer and this will be sent by post to the address you provided when creating your login. 

PRESET is assessed using multiple choice questions. There are four e-assessments which correspond to the four topics of the course. Assessments have been designed to adhere with the principles of VACSR in the sense they are valid, authentic, current, sufficient, and reliable.

"I liked that all of the course was geared towards practicality. All of the psychological research and teaching theory was closely followed by how one would use it when tutoring"
