‘You said…we did’
1. Learners have said that they would like broader progression information from their tutors.
We designed a booklet for tutors on providing information, advice and guidance with tips on routes of progression.
2. Members and learners have said they would like more information about the WEA and how to get involved.
We have designed a WEA Guide full of essential information on our vision, mission, membership, and how to volunteer with the WEA.
3. Tutors have told us that there is too much paperwork.
We annually review the paperwork and have designed a Tutor Guide which contains key information and links to where to find out more.
4. Our volunteers told us that they would like to have WEA volunteer badges, especially when working in support roles in classrooms.
We now have WEA badges for our volunteers.
5. Our ‘mystery shopper’ exercise showed us that we can improve the information and guidance we give during initial telephone enquiries.
We have designed an information and advice summary sheet to help all staff answer queries from potential learners.
