Over recent years, tutoring has become very popular in the UK, with many parents choosing to supplement their children’s education with regular one-to-one tuition. It is suggested that, in London, up to 40% of young people have received private tuition at some point during their education. 
 
Whether to prepare for exams or simply to build a child’s confidence at school, individualised learning is a highly sought-after service and it is estimated that there are up to one million people currently teaching pupils outside of school in the UK.  However, competition for the best tutors is fierce, and it can be a challenge for parents to make an informed choice. 
 
In recognition of this, The Tutors’ Association (TTA) was launched in October 2013 with codes of practice for its members, to establish a professional standard. Since the launch, most of the UK’s top tutoring companies have now joined, along with a growing number of individual tutors. 
 
At the launch of The Tutors’ Association, the keynote speech was provided by Graham Stuart M.P., Chairman of the Education Select Committee, who fully supports the Association.  It is very much the Association’s ethos to work closely and responsibly with parents’ groups and schools’ associations; many of whom have already lauded TTA’s initiative.
 
For individual tutors, the Association brings recognition of the contribution and the vital role that individual tutors play in pupils’ education and provides full support to their development, with a host of membership benefits including seminars and workshops and a forum to interact and share best practice with other tutors.
 
For parents, a responsible and trusted organisation such as TTA helps to ensure that pupils get the best support possible from their tutor. Galore Park is delighted to support TTA members in helping pupils to develop their potential.
