PURPLE PERKS OF BECOMING AN ASSOCIATE                                                                                           
Aside from the amazing support you receive from your Tutor Delivery Manager, there are some great reasons to come onboard as an Associate Tutor with Learning Curve Group.

As an associate tutor you have the luxury of picking and choosing how often you would like to teach to accommodate to your other commitments. All Employability courses differ in terms of the length of the course and the number of days which are required from the tutor each week for delivery. You will receive all courses information prior to accepting work.  

From day 1 you will receive support from your Tutor Delivery Manager, starting with an in depth and thorough onboarding process and a chance to ask all your questions! You will have regular contact and update with your manager over Microsoft Teams, or face to face if you’re passing the office.

We have recently invested into a live scheduling tool called ROTA for all our tutors in Employability. As a tutor you will receive instructions on how to sign into the APP. Once you have completed your profile, you will receive notifications when a job has been assigned to you and be able to look at all your upcoming courses you have agreed with your Tutor Manager to deliver. Organisation at its finest!

Standardisation Meetings
You will use your own initiative to complete the services, however LCG can specify working standards which are monitored by observations and twice-yearly standardisation meetings. The standardisation meetings are also an excellent opportunity to learn and share best practice with other tutors across the nation.
