Every year approximately 2000  tutors teach the thousands of WEA courses that take place in local communities across England and Scotland. To our students they are the face of the WEA providing expert tuition obviously but also providing so much more. They encourage and support  students, helping them gain confidence, knowledge and skills.   They enrich the lives of thousands of students and help create the welcoming and friendly atmosphere experienced in every WEA course.

We are always interested to hear from qualified tutors across England and Scotland. Our tutors are paid an hourly rate and employed on a sessional basis. If you are interested in tutoring with us 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 - once completed, please email to your relevant WEA regional office as per our regional contacts page
