INTRODUCTION

Scholar Hub Limited (“ScholarHub) requires all tutors contracted by ScholarHub, to adhere to its Code of Professional Practice. 

This document sets out your adherence to this Code of professional Practice (“the Code”) as an essential part of your continued membership criteria.

Each Tutor will be held accountable for their work and behaviour and must support the values, principles and standards upon which ScholarHub’s business reputation rests.

This Code sets out the policies in respect of a Tutor’s conduct to engender professional and ethical practice in the best interests of the ScholarHub, its members and learners and parents who make use of tutoring services.

For purposes of this document:

“Tutor”, “you”, “your” refers to every registered organisational tutoring company and individual tutor who is a registered tutor at ScholarHub and teaches pupils up to the age of 18;

“ScholarHub”, “we”, “us”, “our” refers to ScholarHub.

“Adult Educator” means a registered tutor at ScholarHub who tutors individuals older than 18 years of age”

PURPOSE

The purpose of the Code is to describe principles of professional conduct and to provide guidance in ethical decision making. As a Tutor and member of ScholarHub, you are expected to be familiar with this Code and ensure adherence to all its terms.

The Code is especially important for ScholarHub as there is a legal and moral obligation of  ScholarHub and its Members to ensure that when tutoring and interacting with children under the age of 18, they are treated with the highest possible standard of care in keeping with the provisions of the Children’s Act 1989 and 2004, and the Children & Young Persons’ Act 2008.

APPLICATION OF THE CODE

The Code applies to all Tutors who render tuition services to learners through online services.

Although the Code lays out the fundamental principles of professional, ethical and legal conduct, it cannot anticipate every ethical dilemma or situation you may encounter in performing your daily work. If at any time you are unsure about the proper course of action, please contact us to discuss your concerns at: hello@scholarhub.co.uk.
