What qualifications/ do I need a DBS check to sign up as a tutor?

Last Updated: Jul 16, 2019 12:00PM BST

There are no formal qualifications needed to become a tutor and in fact, some of the best tutors we work with are not qualified teachers. 

Our tutors are not required to have a DBS certificate to become a tutor, however, we strongly encourage our tutors to apply for an enhanced DBS if they are planning to tutor children. We are happy to help tutors to secure a background check through Tutorfair. If you would like to apply for an enhanced DBS please contact

If you already have a valid DBS, you will need to upload your certificate to your profile and it must be dated within the last three years, or you must be registered with the update service. 

As long are prepared and able to plan and deliver lessons with excellent subject knowledge, then why not make a profile and get started today!
