Join the Australian Tutoring Association
Membership with the ATA carries a certain responsibility. The letters ‘MATA’ indicate that a tutor or tutoring organisation is a member of the ATA. Members can use the ATA logo in advertising to promote the fact that they are members and uphold the high aspirations of the Association.
Membership means strict adherence to the ATA Code of Conduct. The Code serves both as a guide to members, as well as protecting them. Upholding the Code of Conduct should ensure that there is consistency and predictability for the practitioners and their clients.
Membership Requirements & Inclusions
ATA membership includes access to free accreditation , discounted insurance, and discounted web design. Once members have completed the accreditation process, only then will discounted insurance be available.
This is because accreditation represents less risk from an insurance perspective, and thus attracts a discount. From an industry perspective, the ATA is proud to encourage accreditation to benchmark best-practice in Australia. Accredited ATA members represent the highest standards of tutoring in the nation, and arguably globally.
Non-teachers need to do the training units provided by Accredited Tutor in order to be classified as “Accredited”. This requires contacting Accredited Tutor and enrolling in and successfully completing both a literacy test and the five training units. All of these can be completed online and they take 2-3 hours each (or less).
The ATA expects all members to be Accredited. Our search function has been designed to preference and prioritise members who have completed their Accreditation over those who have not completed Accreditation. Accordingly, Accredited members appear first in searches and pending members appear lower down.
How do I change my “Pending status”?
By contacting Accredited Tutor and either do the training, or show evidence of teaching qualification and other information they require
