Certified Tutor Status: A new precedence for the tuition industry
In what is otherwise an unregulated industry, their Certified Tutor Status provides a benchmark for quality assurance that clients and agencies can trust.
Established in 2019, Myelin Academia set about redefining entry criteria for tutoring. Their Level 3 training, is akin to a pocket-sized PGCE. Aptly named ‘PRESET’, stands for
- Psychological Research,
- Executive Skill &
- Educational Techniques (there is also a fourth module on Good Practice, but that bit couldn’t fit into the acronym!).
In essence, to teach the fundamental skills that underpin all great educators. At the same time preparing students for life beyond the challenges of education. On completion of a theory component and practical application of these skills, users are eligible for Certified Tutor Status.

Evidence from the National Tutoring Programme
In July of 2020, Founder Leona Potter spoke out about the need for training in the National Tutoring Programme, which was picked up by FE News. Several months on, marking her words, the National Tutoring Programme announced that “evidence indicates that tuition is most effective when tutors are provided with training”.
With the recent announcement to extend the NTP, Myelin Academia’s Level 3 Award in Applied Tutor Training fits eligibility criteria for agencies looking to become a Tuition Partner. Agencies can request bespoke training packages by making an enquiry here.
Who is the tutor training aimed at?
Although originally designed as an induction tool for agencies to use with new tutors, they received overwhelmingly positive feedback from PGCE qualified teachers which they couldn’t ignore. 100% of PGCE users recommended the training when asked about user satisfaction.
Individual users can create their own logins. They can then begin their training at any point. Agencies can also build bespoke training workshops tailored to their tutors’ needs.
What are some of its unique features?
Users have unlimited and continued access to all training toolkits and resources.
They offer 1-2-1 support guidance. You can then discuss course content, strategies supporting a challenging client, or any other tutoring concern you have. All this and there is a money-back guarantee on this service!
The recent collaboration with the PGCE training at Canterbury Christ Church University
Myelin Academia were invited to host a training workshop for the PGCE course on ‘Inclusion, Differentiation, What affects learning & How to meet the needs of individual learners’. See Myelin Academia tutor training blog.
Did you know?
Their company name ‘myelin’ is based upon the myelin sheath that surrounds the axon in a neuron. The biological function of myelin is to facilitate the transmission of an electrical impulse along the never cell. So, when you think about it, tutors are the facilitators of knowledge. They help to impart and bestow skills upon their learners. There are nice branding details like this throughout. Even their ‘PRESET’ acronym, the name given to their training, means ‘to apply a setting in advance’.
