A professional body is right for the tutoring industry.
(PRWEB) June 29, 2012
The Centre for Market Reform of Education (CMRE) has invited Adam Caller, education consultant and founder of Tutors International, and other industry leaders to participate in a round table to explore the case for a new professional body for private tutors.
James Croft, Director of the CMRE, stated that “While many agencies have invested significantly in vetting and quality control, the industry as a whole has been slow to recognise best practice and follow their lead. As such we believe that the sector remains vulnerable to unwelcome regulatory intervention.”
Tutors International is a world-leading private tutor agency, placing high-calibre full-time home tutors with families around the world. Adam Caller founded the organisation in 1999, and has long been an advocate of self-regulation and a professional regulation in the private tutoring industry.
Caller has been pushing for increased professionalism in the industry, and for a recognised private tutoring qualification, outside of normal teaching qualifications. “Private tutoring should be like any other industry, with professional qualifications set by an industry body to carry out background checks, provide benchmarks and monitor standards.”
“This is going to happen,” continued Caller. “A professional body is right for the tutoring industry – it is right for tutors, for children, and for parents. It will, however, need collaboration to succeed, and I want to be one of those in the driving seat.”
