TutorShip is the Institute's own distance learning programme.
TutorShip is a study method that provides the necessary
preparation for the Institute's examinations but also gives
students the opportunity to broaden their understanding of the
industry and develop career potential.
TutorShip courses are written by leading practitioners in their
field and updated annually.
You can enrol for TutorShip via the London Head Office or at your
local Institute Teaching Centre (ITC). ITCs working on behalf of
the Institute use TutorShip materials to provide tuition to
students in their own locality. All our tutors, worldwide,
are approved by the Institute's Head Office in London and they are
specialists in their field.
Some ITCs also organise other training courses, revision events
and seminars for students and members.
Contact your local ITC or branch for more information.
