Adam Caller, founder of Tutors International, explains the reasons why parents considering hiring a full-time private tutor need to begin the process so far in advance
[UKPRwire, Wed Jan 06 2010] Tutors International is urging parents considering hiring a full-time private tutor in autumn 2010 to begin the recruitment process with the private tutor agency now. Many families who contact Tutors International to find excellent full-time tutors are unaware of the time-scales involved, hence the warning from the leading private tuition agency.

"The recruitment cycle in the education industry is longer than in many others," explained Adam Caller, founder of Tutors International. "Many families simply don't appreciate the fact that it takes time to not only find suitable candidates, but that once they've been found, the notice period of a school term can be anything up to three months. It can be hard to appreciate that the recruitment of a tutor starting in September 2010 needs to begin in January, but there's no getting away from the fact that if the process is started later, it gets harder for us to find the very best candidates in the time left available."
"The recruitment process begins with an extensive interview with the family, and from that I create a detailed brief that's used in our recruitment materials," Adam explained. "Ideally, that brief is released by the end of January, giving us enough time to review candidates and make a shortlist before the Easter break. This means that the final candidate can hand in their notice at the end of the spring term, work out the summer term notice period and be free to start with the family in the summer or early autumn. The families that come to us to find private tutors are seeking the very best, and are not prepared to compromise on their child's education," Adam added. "That's why we're making this announcement now, as leaving it too late can force a compromise on candidates which is simply unnecessary with a bit of forward planning."
