A key part in delivering SLQ qualifications is to ensure that at least one person from your centre has undertaken Tutor Training with us.

Tutor Training provides all you need to deliver regulated qualifications with us.

'Trained Tutor/Assessor' status lasts for two years, after which you will need to attend a refresher webinar which are available throughout the year.

Why not take advantage of our qualification packages that include free access to Tutor Training?

What does Tutor Training  look like?

•Online e-training covering the key roles and responsibilities of Centre Personnel (Centre Course Manager, Tutor/Assessor and Internal Verifier)

• An attended Leadership Induction day that gives focus to the process of Teaching Leadership and best practice when assessing learners.

There is no limit to how many people from your Centre can undertake the e-training.

Qualification delivery can start as soon as the Tutor/Assessor's (T/A) e-training has been completed.

Your centre will be given access to the e-training once the Leadership Induction day has been booked by at least one member of staff.

We also offer bespoke Tutor Training for your organisation...

This can be for any of our qualifications covering Sport, Dance or Lowland leadership to meet specific training requirements.

Bespoke Tutor Training is suitable for organisations wishing to train upwards of 12 people. The organisation would provide a venue for this to take place.
