The Workers` Educational Association is a unique charity and the UK`s largest voluntary sector provider of adult education. With a clear vision and a strong social purpose, we bring great teaching to local communities, with life-changing courses held in clubs, pubs, workplaces, schools and almost anywhere else you can think of. Since 1903, we have been giving disadvantaged people the opportunity to return to learning - inspiring them to realise their full potential and become active, engaged citizens. We see education as a tool for social justice, not just self-improvement, and we pride ourselves on making learning egalitarian and accessible. Volunteers play a central role in everything we do, from governance through to classroom support, helping us deliver courses to 50,000 people in 2,300 locations - and enabling us to reach 80% of the population.
We are looking for inspiring ESOL tutors who have experience of successfully working with adults with the aim of developing their English skills to achieve qualifications as well as increased confidence and independence. We need tutors to deliver a planned ESOL programme in Nottingham from September 2021 using a blend of classroom and online learning. Our courses lead to City & Guilds qualifications.
