Subject Tutors

Having the right tutor makes a huge difference to a student's experience. Time and again we hear from students who tell us that their tutor gave them confidence to succeed after years of thinking that they would never gain the qualifications they needed to change career, or go on to university. Whilst we are currently looking for tutors in the areas listed below, we are always happy to receive speculative CVs.

General requirements for tutoring:

For A level, IGCSE or GCSE tutoring we ask that:

  • you have a degree in a relevant subject and a recognised teaching qualification
  • you are ideally, currently teaching and are very familiar with the current educational climate, particularly the changes to A Level teaching.

In addition we welcome those who are also examiners and have experience of working with awarding bodies, and those with knowledge of distance tutoring and the use of Moodle or similar Virtual Learning Environments.

You should be prepared to attend standardisation, or course review events, which are held annually for courses where non-exam assessment (NEA) is part of assessment. These may be at our NEC Office (Cambridge) or online.

General education:

We would be interested to hear from you if you have current or very recent experience of teaching the following courses:

  • A level Physics (Edexcel 9PH0)
  • IGCSE History (Edexcel 4H0 and 4H1)

CMI Management:

We are also looking for tutors for our CMI (Chartered Management Institute) courses:

  • CMI Level 3 in First Line Management
  • CMI Level 5 in Management and Leadership

For the CMI courses, you should be very amiliar with offering these particular CMI qualifications. You must also hold an approved internal assessor/verifier qualification (eg. D34 Internal Verifier Award, V1 Award). NEC abides by the rules set down by CMI and will seek approval from CMI to offer the role of tutor to successful applicants.

Book keeping:

If you have experience of tutoring book keeping courses, we would very much like to hear from you.
