How Does the Foundations of Effective Tutoring Training Work?

Blended learning across 5 units

We know that learning at your own pace can be tough. That’s why we have created a blended learning environment for all learners.

Self-Paced Learning

Progress through the units at your own pace. Engaging videos, tasks and discussion topics enable you to form deep understanding of each unit.

Peer-to-Peer Driven

The best learning is made when we learn together. Discussion topics, the QT community & the cohort area create a safe environment to learn & share with fellow participants.

Live Tutor Training Support

Join our facilitators each week to discuss the course, opportunities for learning, and further development. Available to current and alumni learners.

What makes QT Training special?

We are obsessed with creating effective training for you. Find out how we do it.

Hybrid Learning

This course can be completed at your own pace as you work through the videos and complete tasks. Our facilitators assess and respond to your answers, as well as hosting live drop-in clinics every Monday.


The Accredited Tutor Training provided by Qualified Tutor is designed to enable a thoughtful training process. Learners come together in discussion topics to learn from one another’s experiences and ideas.


Our QT House Rules are Be Curious, Be Generous, Be Reflective. This learning culture enables real transformation.
