Are you a first-rate tutor or trainer? Can you help Britain’s leading adult education charity change people’s lives?

We are the WEA, a unique charity and the UK’s largest voluntary sector provider of adult education. We were recently rated “Good” in all categories by Ofsted and we aspire to be outstanding. Since 1903, we have been offering disadvantaged adults the opportunity to return to learning – inspiring them to realise their full potential and become active, engaged citizens. We deliver courses to 50,000 people in 2,300 locations across England and Scotland. Our focus is on social purpose and change and we achieve this by bringing great teaching to local communities. We run courses in community venues such as workplaces, schools, libraries and even the local pub!

We currently require sessional tutors in a number of locations across the country to deliver accredited and non-accredited programmes within our pathways. All pathway courses have a set of teaching resources. You can view the WEA pathways on our website https://www.wea.org.uk/get-involved/pathways
