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. However, we do require anyone applying to become a tutor with us to obtain an Enhanced DBS Certificate. 


If you already have an Enhanced DBS Certificate, you can start your application to become a tutor with us. 


Unfortunately, we are unable to assist with processing DBS checks however we have several alternative options to help you start your DBS application. Please get in touch at support@tutorfair.com to ask about how we can help you apply for a DBS check. 


Please note, from October 2021, all current tutors on our platform will be encouraged to obtain a current enhanced DBS certificate. All new tutors signing up to the platform will require a current application prior to creating their profile. We will consider a DBS valid if they are:- 

  • an enhanced certificate
  • issued within the last year
  • if not issued within the last year, on the DBS update service
