'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 details Children's Barred List Information.
If you don’t have a valid DBS check, we can register an application for you with our partner, Onfido. This costs £59. Alternatively, you can get one online yourself. Once registered, Onfido checks can come back as quickly as two to three working days. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org to register your interest. Please note that as all our DBS checks are carried out by Onfido, all charges will be handled by them directly.
***HALF PRICE SALE***
- For a limited period of time we are offering half price DBS checks for eligible tutors who want to join the Schools Programme.
