You are not required to have a background check to become a Tutor on our site.
Our aim is to help students make an informed choice, as opposed to making that choice for them, and we have lots of learners for whom a background check isn’t important. It is for this reason that it is not a requirement for tutors who use our site to provide a background check to us.
To be awarded background checked status, you must have shown us proof that you have an enhanced background check dated within the last two years or are on the update service, with no past cautions or charges. We can only accept an Enhanced DBS check, the PVG Scheme Record or an Enhanced Access NI check. Unfortunately, we cannot help tutors secure a background check. If you need any help uploading this check to your account, please refer to our guide here.
Our terms and conditions (https://tutorful.co.uk/terms) set out what we accept when awarding the ‘Background Checked Status’.
You must not claim to have a background check on your profile without having been awarded the ‘Background Checked Status’.
