Tutor Bank

Community based delivery is important to us, and it takes a tutor with a certain set of skills to be able to transform a community room into a supportive, friendly, yet challenging learning environment.

Q&A utilises a bank of self employed tutors who are experienced at delivering in the community, and understand the barriers faced by those returning to learning after a period of time, or those accessing learning whist dealing with other problems in their lives.

Several of our tutors are past learners, who after accessing our provision wanted to give something back, and having undertaken AET / CET training are now paid members of our tutor bank. Others have joined from traditional teaching backgrounds and want to take their skills into the community or workplace.

All tutors undergo an extensive application process to ensure they are able to meet the high standards that we have in place, this includes an interview with two of our team. For those that are successful, we will closely monitor the first course they deliver, from planning through to an observation of their delivery.

We are always interested in adding new tutors to the tutor bank, and for the right person we are able to offer:

  • Up to £22.50 per hour dependent on experience
  • Annual training events
  • Discounted access to our courses
  • The opportunity to manage your own workload
  • Regular updates
  • Support to develop your own ideas and tutor courses
  • Opportunities to work throughout Cornwall

To join the tutor bank, you must fulfil the following criteria:

  • Hold appropriate teaching qualifications (at least equivalent to AET)
  • Be qualified in the subject that you want to teach
  • Be able to work on a self-employed basis
  • Able to provide (or pay for) an enhanced DBS check

Thank you for your interest.
