Can you help Britain’s leading adult education charity change people’s lives?

We are the Workers’ Educational Association (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 our London Region to deliver History of Art courses.

We need tutors with:

  • a subject specialism
  • experience of working in community settings with diverse students
  • a strong understanding of adult learning and a belief in its importance
  • a teaching qualification at least at Level 3 or you will be keen to work towards a teaching qualification
  • excellent interpersonal and organisational skills
  • a desire to share and improve teaching practice
  • Up to date CPD

WEA assumes you will be excited by using digital technology both in the classroom with the student and to manage course administration and communication.

You will be required to have a basic or enhanced DBS check to teach in certain venues or with certain student groups. Because we serve people from all walks of life, we’re keen to develop a diverse workforce and particularly welcome applications from members of minority groups.

If you have any specific questions, please email them to rrobshaw@wea.org.uk

Satellite meeting – 18 Oct 2017 2-4pm

The next meeting of Satellite will take place tomorrow – Wednesday 18 October 2017, 14.00-16.00 in Keynes Library (Room 114), 43 Gordon Square.

Satellite is an experimental group within the School of Arts focused on learning technologies, broadly defined. It operates as a hybrid, in that it is both a formal subcommittee for the School of Arts’ Teaching and Quality Enhancement Committee, and at the same time, a forum for exchanging information and perspectives on the critical, creative, academic and pedagogical dimensions of learning technologies.

Although as a subcommittee Satellite includes formal department representatives, its meetings remain an open forum for all who would like to attend, including academic and administrative staff, as well as postgraduate research students.

Minutes from our last meeting, along with an agenda for the forthcoming meeting, are available on Satellite’s Moodle page (http://moodle.bbk.ac.uk/course/view.php?id=4447). If you are not already enrolled, once there, you simply need to self-enrol using the following enrolment key: artstel

Very best,
Scott
