E-tutors receive an induction pack, ongoing support and assistance and a small financial reward for your time. As part of the e-learning programme there is a special e-tutor site which provides guidance on each module and support materials written by housing experts.

The site has been built by Suffolk Association of Voluntary Organisations (SAVO) for the Hub.  For more information about Learning to Drive and to find out more about becoming an e-tutor, please contact.
