Is being a DLC Tutor for me?
As a DLC tutor you will need to be able to ring your students every week (negotiated between yourself and the students) apart from holidays. You need to mark work accurately within the two week turn around period. You will also need to able to write academic references.
You need to enjoy helping students meet their goals, go the extra mile and love seeing students blossom and grow.
You will be the sort of person who keeps up with what is going on in the sector and be able to give good and valid advice on your student's goals. You also need to want to be part of a team and yet autonomous so that if you do not know something you will ask, or even drop in for a cup of tea.
What you do not need to do is write all your own materials and assessments. These are all provided for you, but if you think that you can improve things please let us know as we are always willing to make things better.

The website and materials were easy to navigate and the Facebook group gave me extra reassurance and support.
The tutors were supportive, patient and most importantly motivated me to carry on when I found it tough. I would highly recommend them to anyone needing to gain an extra qualification to achieve their dream career. Emily
The learning materials were excellent and they exceeded my expectations. I would like to thank my family and the tutors for their amazing support.
I am happy to say to have secured a place to study a Nursing Degree this September. I cannot recommend them enough. Yannick
The course is excellently written with information perfectly explained for those who have been out of education.
I completed mine whilst working full time, undergoing several overseas military deployments in support of the COVID pandemic. I could not have done this without them, my tutors were with me every step of the way! John
Support of tutors, & the wider student community were fundamental in enabling me to overcome adversity. The peer support of fellow students proved a wonderful resource. People of all ages & backgrounds united in their desire to study & self-develop, quick to offer help & encouragement. So I became active in supporting others through the Facebook Group. Richard
I have dyslexia. They suited all my needs. It was flexible, affordable, and the modules offered would provide me with the fundamental basics to study a Law degree.
They did more than help me get into my dream Russell Group university studying Law. The whole experience finally made me feel academically worthy. Sam
Tutors and staff have been fantastic in helping me achieve the grades I need, as well as any other situations I needed support with.
I applied to 2 universities and have received conditional offers from both.
I have achieved more credits than the offer requires, it wouldn't have been possible without them. Aaliya
I loved the flexibility that comes with the course and the outstanding tutors.
I have since been offered a place from two universities to study a BSc in Adult Nursing.
It is in this regard that I strongly recommend them without hesitation for any person who would like to reboot their career. Mehluli
I was very nervous about beginning my studies as I thought that Access to HE Diplomas were aimed at mature students, being 17 at the time of beginning my studies. But I was so wrong!
The Diploma is for anyone wanting to enter higher education. The staff, and my tutors especially, couldn't have been more accommodating and supportive. Beth
From day one I found my tutors to be incredibly friendly, supportive and accessible. They encourage independent learning, but are always there to give guidance and answer questions of any kind.
The learning materials are brilliant; extremely thorough and logically laid out in topics and sub-topics, so you move smoothly through. Victoria
The materials were easy to follow. I received advice from others via the Facebook page & from my personal tutor, who was always so quick to answer any questions. During the modules, I developed my research methods & even my English improved. I am far more confident in finding the pros & cons of every theory. I now feel I am in a far better position & I am currently enrolled on an LLB Qualifying Law degree. Sean
They stood out for me because of their flexibility and affordability.
Enrolling to study remotely for a science course, was overwhelmingly nerve-wracking but my tutors were very kind, supportive and helpful. Their support allowed me to excel and achieve high grades. I have now secured a place at a university. Fanny
