Dukes Tutors go through one of the most rigorous selection processes in the UK. For one-to-one work, tutors must provide evidence of their academic qualifications and valid proof of an enhanced Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS) clearance to work with children, as well as their right to work in the UK.
All our medical tutors are interviewed by a senior member of staff before we invite them to become a Dukes Tutor. Following this, they are recommended for specific roles within our education consultancy services, depending on their particular expertise and gifts – whether that be interviewing, tutoring, working at our in-school events, supporting students with admissions tests, or mentoring.
Our tutors are then trained by a team of dedicated education consultants based at our headquarters in central London. These act as a focal point for information, research and further work with our team of former medical Admissions Tutors. Alongside these, we have a number of former Admissions Tutors and specialised education consultants on our Advisory Board – many of whom attend our courses and give support directly to students.
Tutors also receive in-depth training from external interview specialists to help them give the best possible support to students. At every stage, our applicants’ needs are the focus of our work.
We constantly review our tutors based on their feedback and results to ensure that the students we work with are receiving outstanding guidance and support at every stage of their application to medical school.
The amount of work experience students will have is limited by practicalities; your experience will be predominantly limited to your holidays from school, and placement availability
