Sessional Tutor Helping in Schools (SEND experience desirable)

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 accessible.

WEA are looking to recruit a Helping in Schools Tutor to teach the non- accredited introduction to Helping in Schools and the Level 2 accredited Helping in Schools course, aimed at helping people to move into supporting roles in primary schools or other child care settings.

You will be keen to engage with people from a range of disadvantaged backgrounds and rekindle their love of learning, and you will share our passion for egalitarianism and empowerment.

We are looking for tutors that have:

- Up to date working knowledge and experience of teaching Helping in Schools provision including starting your own business, job readiness, use of social media in the workplace to diverse student groups;
-Experience of working in community settings;
-A strong understanding of adult learning and a belief in its importance;
-A recognised teaching qualification (PGCE, DTLLS, Cert Ed or appropriate professional experience);
-Experience of delivering non-accredited and accredited courses up to level 5;
-A good understanding of the Education Inspection Framework and RARPA and quality assurance processes;
-Excellent interpersonal and organisational skills;
-A desire to share and improve teaching practice.

You will be a qualified and capable teacher, you will be keen to engage with disadvantaged people and rekindle their love of learning, and you will share our passion for egalitarianism and empowerment.
WEA delivers from a variety of blended learning in community venues in and online. We assume that you will be excited by using digital technology both in the classroom with the student and to manage course administration. The ideal candidate will be IT literate and able to deliver through a blended learning approach including the use of Zoom, and Canvas, our Virtual Learning Environment (VLE).
