Brand New Online Personal Tutoring Qualification

From the discussions we’ve had with education providers, learning about the personal tutoring role is of interest to many tutors and there are not many opportunities for CPD in this area. To fill this gap, we’ve created a Level 3 Award in Understanding the Personal Tutoring Role, which can be completed fully online. Unique to Ascentis – an international Awarding Organisation for Education and Training qualifications – this qualification can be used for CPD for FE tutors and provides training and accredited professional development opportunities for those in, or intending to be in, a personal tutoring role within a variety of contexts.


The qualification explores the personal tutoring role, including the responsibilities and boundaries. It covers the underlying principles and legal requirements involved and looks at values, beliefs and attitudes. It also explores how to make an inclusive environment for learners as well as professional working relationships with others. 

Learners will be taught how to plan and organise tutorials, create individual learning plans, develop targets and help learners to develop their own study skills. In addition, there is a unit that looks at barriers to learning, additional learning needs, the support options available and identifying students at risk.
