Why qualification?

GPTA CEO Mohan Dhall identified three aspects to responsible self-regulation:

The GPTA Board recognised some years ago that the industry needed a form of qualification to add to complete the essential aspects of self-regulation. The model aims to help raise global standards and to vest confidence in the industry. It is very important that parents and their children be given more information so that they can make informed choices. Parents who take on a tutor for their child are advised to only use GPTA members and to hold ALL tutors accountable to the GPTA Code of Ethics
