We understand that many clients are happy to manage their relationship with a IT trainer themselves and would prefer not to continue paying an agency for that service.

First Tutors: I.T. vs a Typical Agency

First Tutors: I.T. differs from Training Agencies and Brokers and it is important that you understand how:

  • Browse and select your IT trainer - it is your choice who you choose for your needs, we aren't the middle man
  • Contact IT trainers directly to discuss your needs - no payment necessary, you can talk in our private forums first
  • We don't perform CRB checks or ask for certification - this means you must ask for any references/CRBs your trainer offers to ensure you are satisfied.
  • We ask for a one-off £4.99-19.99* introduction fee and that's all. We don't ask for a £4.99-19.99* fee on top of every hour a trainer teaches but equally we cannot fairly intervene if you are not happy with the trainer you have chosen because we do not manage the ongoing relationship. We do however collect feedback from all clients regarding their IT trainer a couple of weeks after making an introduction for the benefit of other learners.

* Our one-off fees are variable and linked to the tutor's price per hour to make our service as affordable as possible
