NEC’s team of experienced staff are right at the core of what we do

Coming from a range of backgrounds, with each individual making a worthwhile contribution to the College’s work, the staff work closely together to provide a first-class service and look for ways to improve how NEC delivers education to its students.

Could you be a distance learning tutor with NEC?

Our Tutors work remotely, generally alongside other work or personal commitments on a self employed basis.

The National Extension College (NEC) is an educational charity based in Cambridge which is part of the Open School Trust. NEC has provided tutor-supported home study courses directly to learners for over 50 years, and also publishes learning resources for colleges and training providers.

NEC is seeking tutors in general education to work remotely supporting our students study. This role is ideal if you are wanting to gain additional income alongside your other commitments.

Having the right tutor makes a huge difference to a student’s experience. Time and again we hear from our students who tell us that their tutor gave them confidence to succeed, encouraged them to keep studying and helped them gain the qualification(s) they needed to go to university or to change career. 

Tutoring online is different from classroom teaching. Although both require a high level of subject knowledge and the skills to guide and work with students, distance learning tutors focus more heavily on providing high quality feedback. 

Many of our tutors are currently employed teachers and find that due to the flexibility of role, they are able to fit in being an NEC tutor alongside other commitments. The role would also suit retired teachers looking for a part-time role. All NEC tutors work remotely on a self employed basis.

At NEC we look for tutors who can demonstrate their enthusiasm and knowledge of the subject in their feedback and guidance to every student.

NEC is looking to recruit experienced GCSE and A Level Tutors to support students on our online courses.

You would be a perfect fit with us if you have: 

  • A degree in the subject you will be tutoring
  • A recognised teaching qualification
  • Recent experience of teaching the subject you will be tutoring

We would particularly welcome applications from tutors with examining experience. Do send in your CV if you feel you could be a good fit for any of our courses. However, we are currently particularly interested in receiving interest for the below courses:

  • GCSE Astronomy
  • A level Politics
  • A level and GCSE Sociology
  • GCSE Psychology
  • IGCSE History
  • A level and IGCSE Business
  • A level and IGCSE French
  • IGCSE Chemistry, Physics, Combined, Double Sciences

As a long-established educational charity delivering distance learning courses to a wide range of learners we would expect you to believe in lifelong learning and in the transformative nature of education.

Please send your current CV, including details of 2 referees and DBS number if available to tutor.recruitment@nec.ac.uk
