Online Tutor Training Seminar (QT21)


The CPD-accredited Online Tutor Training Seminar is for tutors who want to gain foundations in teaching and learning within a supportive professional development community. It will help tutors to think like an educator, and make a real difference for students.

This 5-week online facilitated course combines self-paced content with live online meet-ups to create the ideal blend for adult learners. We limit the size of each cohort, so that you can benefit from 1:1 support from your facilitator and get to know the other learners in your group.


What you need know:

  • Units are released each Wednesday morning, allowing you to access the course material in your own time.
  • Live Meet-Ups happen every Monday morning at 10am and Wednesday evening at 7.30pm. Ideally, learners should attend at least one live event per week.
  • The Online Tutor Training Seminar takes 2-3 hours/ week for 5 weeks to complete.
