Welcome to the Australian Tutoring Organisaton (ATA)

As the only organisation of our kind in Australia, we aim to represent tutoring organisations and educational tutors all across the country.

Officially launched on 7th March 2005, the ATA has been formed in recognition of the need to unify the tutoring industry nationally.  The ATA has members from around Australia.

It aims to represent tutors and tutoring organisations, act as a lobby group and raise the standard of tutoring in Australia.

Our mission:

 Represent the tutoring industry

 Act as a lobby group

 Raise the standard of tutoring in Australia

All of our members share this vision. They are all committed to helping students. As ethical practitioners they agree to abide by the Code of Conduct. You are invited to read this Code. Widespread application of this Code will help protect clients and ensure that they are receiving a high standard of service and accountability. The ATA has had a very successful first year of operating and has grown rapidly. We celebrated the end of the first year of bringing together, lobbying for and setting ethical standards in the tutoring sector by launching our first newsletter Within Tuition.

On the 5th December, 2006, the Australian Tutoring Association held its second Annual General Meeting in Croydon, NSW. At this meeting the first Committee of the ATA was elected. In 2008 the Association became Company Limited by Guarantee following a vote by members.
