Academic Support Center Certified by International Tutoring Program
October 18, 2018
The TLU Academic Support Center has earned certification Levels One and Two through the International Tutor Training Program of the College Reading (ITTPC) and Learning Association. To earn ITTPC certification, training programs must provide a set program of topics using multiple training modes for their tutors and peer educators.
According to their website, The purpose of the ITTPC program is twofold. First, it provides recognition and positive reinforcement for tutors' successful work from an international organization, CRLA. Second, CRLA's tutor training program certification process sets an internationally accepted standard of skills and training for tutors. ITTPC does not certify tutors or tutor trainers, but instead certifies tutor training programs which can, in turn, recognize their tutors who have met all of the requirements of their tutor training program. The Academic Support Center can now transfer certification to the CLAs and SI Leaders after they attain specific levels of training and acquire certain numbers of hours working with students.
One of the benefits of a certified training program are high expectations for the CLAs and SI Leaders in their sessions, meaning better results for students. Another benefit is that the CLAs and SIs are rewarded for quality work, in addition to giving them the opportunity to strengthen their resumes with their certification credentials. The Academic Support Center training program consists of a two-hour for-credit training practicum class.
