N.B. Note that due to new UK legislation regarding government regulation about vetting & barring concerning anyone working with children or vulnerable adults, anyone making use of FindYourTutor website/s, must now acknowledge they have read the following and ticked the given box below:

From July 26th 2010, within the U.K., working with children or vulnerable adults, becomes a regulated activity. Thus adults tutoring children at the tutor's own home may need to be registered with the Independent Safeguarding Authority. The ISA will check personal records against government databases to ensure that unsuitable people are not registered or working with children or vulnerable adults. All tutors who make use of www.findyourtutor.com site and services to register and contact potential students, are therefore instructed to confirm the following sentence and box:

I confirm that I'm not excluded from working with children- by virtue of my name being included on any banned list or by licence or order (e.g. sexual offences prevention order).

Consequently, any tutors using Find Your Tutor Ltd. will be responsible for providing their ISA (Independent Safeguarding Authority) registration details direct to parents, who may request such details. As such, Find Your Tutor Ltd. has no responsibility to maintain this information and neither will Find Your Tutor Ltd. provide such data to parents.
