Registrations are once again being invited from funeral directors interested in training to become a 'qualified' NAFD approved tutor.

A integrated teacher training programme of blended-learning, based on the development of tutoring skills to national qualification standards integrated with the knowledge required to deliver NAFD qualifications, is once again available for prospective tutors.

Teaching Methods

Attendance of a series of a ten face to face workshops apply in addition to additional self guided personal learning outside of the workshops.  Independent research forms an integral part of the study process.

Delivery includes a range of workshop based activities 


Assessment is based on a blended method of assessment consisting of i.e. assignments, compilation of a portfolio of evidence and live observed practice tutoring sessions.

Funeral Directors can be assured that tuition and assessment received through the NAFD is thorough and of the highest quality, and as such,  reflects the equality and the diversity of all individuals and their respective employers.

We are extremely passionate about the standard of tutoring NAFD approved tutors are able to provide.

Additional Student Support

We are aware there may be some students who will benefit from receiving additional support to improve their key skills in English and Maths. There may be others who experience the impact of Dyslexia or other disabilities. For this reason, tutors will be able to support students and to offer access to a range of resources and tools available.
