How much will it cost?

Level 1 - £50

Level 2 - £50

Level 3 - £50


Please note that this cost does not include any postage. You will be responsible for the cost of posting your work both ways. As the size and weight of projects will vary, we felt that it would be much fairer to each candidate if they paid their own postage costs. With this in mind, you may want to keep the presentation of your projects small with a minimum amount of packaging. But please make sure that your work is well protected. 

How do I submit my work?

Whatever suits you the best. If you wish to cut down on postage costs, you may want to consider a lightweight folder, or even a cellophane card protector. It’s the quality of the work that is important to us and we do not take the presentation into consideration. Just make sure your work is well protected as we cannot be held responsible for any losses or postal damage. We will return your work in the same packaging wherever possible.

How do I pay and where do I send my work?

By cheque made out to the “Academy of Independent Parchment Craft Tutors”. 

This should be sent along with your application form.

Bank credit transfer; Contact Pat Murphy for bank details when you make your payment. In the comments box, please only put "AIPT" followed by your name. This will ensure we know who has paid.

PayPal; using Pat's e-mail address. Please note that there is a £3 service fee for PayPal charges, per exam.

My Commitment To You

It is my wish to help you succeed in becoming a tutor, and the team will be readily available to advise and help you via e-mail.

Please be mindful that if you send an e-mail of your work for some advice, that it isn't always a clear picture from a photograph or scan.

We will take great care in assessing your work and try to give positive feedback and will work together to help you reach your goal.

You will be guided through the levels and you will also have an opportunity to attend various workshops to encourage your growth.

You will have access to new tutor material, information and techniques and the Academy also has a dedicated Facebook group for our tutors and trainee tutors.

I wish you inspiration and enjoyment while working your chosen level
