Becoming a WEA Tutor
The WEA is always interested to hear from qualified tutors across England and Scotland. Our tutors are paid an hourly rate and employed on a sessional basis. Around 2,000 tutors are employed at any one time to deliver courses in England and Scotland. If you are interested in tutoring with us, you can read more on our Teaching with Us information page. If you would like to make an application to be considered as a tutor, you can apply directly to your local WEA region for inclusion in our “pool” of potential course tutors. This does not guarantee an offer of a course, but your details will be held for consideration when vacancies occur. You can download an application form here.
