TutorShip

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 are specialists in their fields.

Some ITCs also organise other training courses, revision events and seminars for students and members.
Contact your local ITC or branch for more information.
