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?

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. 

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 as well as professional skills 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
  • Experience of teaching or tutoring younger learners (14 -18) and young adults (18 – 25) and an understanding of and empathy for the different challenges they may face with online learning
  • Experience of delivering 1-1 online tutorials to students of all ages, but especially younger learners

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. 

NEC are currently looking for tutors for the following exciting roles:

  • A level English Language
