DBS Checks & Certificates

As a standard, we ensure that every single tutor that teaches at Tutor House holds a valid DBS certificate. We do this because we want to assure parents and students the safest learning experience possible with our tutors.

What is a DBS Certificate?

A DBS is a way of checking an individual’s criminal record and background.

DBS checks for tutors are not compulsory, and for self-employed tutors in the UK, it is not a legal requirement. Nonetheless, as a company in education, working with children and adults, we want to offer a service that goes beyond what is necessary.

Tutor House checks every tutor’s DBS during their interview with us. We want to try and do our best to vet tutors before they come into your home or you meet them in public.

We want you to have the best possible experience with your tutor, and we want you to feel comfortable and safe in the knowledge that we’ve checked tutors DBS and background. So you can concentrate on learning and your education.
