'Do I need to get an enhanced DBS check for private tuition on MyTutor?'
You do not need an enhanced DBS check in order to tutor privately on MyTutor. However, parents do give strong preference to those who have a DBS, so it will be to your advantage during your application. If you don't already have a DBS, MyTutor can help you get one.
'Do I need to get an enhanced DBS check to take part in the Schools Programme?'
On the Schools Programme you will be working with children under the age of 18 during school hours. It is therefore a legal requirement for all tutors to be in possession of a valid, enhanced DBS check, that is less than 4 years old, and details Children's Barred List Information.
If you already have a DBS, please ensure that it meets our criteria and upload a clear picture/ scan of the front side to your profile via the 'School opportunities' tab. If you have trouble uploading it, please forward it to firstname.lastname@example.org.
