You don’t need a background check to become a Tutorful tutor!
Our aim is to help students make an informed choice when searching for their perfect tutor, and we have plenty of students on our site for whom a background check isn’t important. This is why we don’t require our tutors to provide a background check in order to tutor with us. 😊
However, if you would like to be awarded Background Checked status on our site, you’ll just need to provide us with proof that you have a clean enhanced background check dated within the last two years, or that you’re registered with the DBS Update Service. You’ll then have a lovely Background Checked badge added to your profile!
We accept Enhanced DBS certificates, the PVG Scheme Record, and Enhanced Access NI checks - you can find more information about what we accept when awarding Background Checked status in our terms and conditions (https://tutorful.co.uk/terms). Unfortunately, we’re not able to help tutors obtain a background check.
If you need any help with uploading your background check documents to your account, feel free to have a read of this article: For Tutors - How do I upload my DBS?
Please note that you must not claim to have a background check on your profile without having been awarded the Background Checked status!
