How to apply to be a Greene’s tutor

Greene’s welcomes applications from potential tutors in all academic subjects, as well as in the aptitude tests required to be taken for British and American universities.

Please apply, using our online application form, which you can access to clicking on the link at the top of this page.

If you have any questions about any part of the form, or for more information about tutoring for Greene’s, please contact us using the form at the bottom of this page.

Acceptance as a tutor at Greene’s requires you to complete our application process, enabling us to maintain the quality, integrity and professionalism of our tutor register.  Greene’s works with both the NSPCC and the Oxfordshire Safeguarding Children Board, to ensure that its recruitment process is fully ‘Safer Recruitment’ compliant, and all successful applicants will be required to undergo child protection checks.

The application process has a number of steps, as follows:

  1. Fill out the short online application form, which you can access by following the link at the top of the page.  Successful completion of this form requires you to agree to Greene’s conditions of engagement for tutors.  Please note: we are unable to accept applications not made through our online application form, however you do have the option to upload your C.V. as part of your application should you wish.
  2. We will respond to your application shortly.  If we are interested in taking your application further, you will be invited to attend an interview with the Senior Tutor or a member of his team.  The interview may be in person or by video link at our discretion.  If we are unable to take your application further at this stage, we will write to you to inform you.
  3. Prior to your interview we will ask you to complete a detailed online pre-interview questionnaire which will include providing us with the names of two referees.  Please note: your referees will be contacted as soon as the pre-interview questionnaire is submitted, as references are required before the interview takes place.
  4. Either at your interview or immediately following your interview, we will inform you of whether you have been successful in becoming a tutor.
  5. Prior to starting tutoring for the College you will be required to complete the following:
    • Documentation compliance checks: we will ask you to provide us with a copy of your passport (and visa should it be applicable), your national insurance number and copies of your academic certificates and professional qualifications.
    • Safeguarding checks: we will ask you to provide us with your enhanced DBS certificate, as well as certificates from any safeguarding or channel general awareness courses that you have undertaken.  The college will also carry out its own additional safeguarding checks.  If you do not already have an enhanced DBS or if you have not completed any safeguarding or channel general awareness courses, we can assist you in completing these.  Please be aware that we require an enhanced DBS, issued no later than two years previously.  If a new DBS is required, (whether or not the applicant has a current DBS) there is a statutory fee (which varies, but is currently £48.16) for an enhanced DBS application.  To avoid further applications in the future, it is recommended you consider applying for the DBS Update Service, at the same time as the enhanced DBS application.  For an additional annual fee (currently £13) the DBS Update Service allows the applicant to keep the DBS certificate up-to-date, and is thus available for checking by any other organisation for which you may work in the future, without your incurring further cost.  The safeguarding and channel general awareness courses are provided online for free by the Oxfordshire Safeguarding Children Board and the Metropolitan Police respectively.
    • Further administrative and professional training: at your interview the Senior Tutor, or a member of his team, will explain to you the particular additional training that will apply to you, taking into account your particular experience and requirements.  The training is based on familiarising you with our systems, procedures, policies and practices.  Additional training and support is available for successful tutors who may not be familiar with the U.K. examination system.
