Find a career that inspires 

Founded in 1903, the WEA is the UK’s largest adult education charity. Our staff are dedicated to bringing high quality education into the heart of communities. This includes providing basic maths, English and IT skills for employment; courses to improve health and wellbeing; creative programmes to broaden horizons and community engagement activities that encourage active citizenship.

We believe that all adults, regardless of situation, should have access to education. We are committed to supporting our students not only to reach their personal aspirations but to also apply their learning to their communities and the wider world. 

The WEA recognises the positive value of diversity, promotes equality and challenges discrimination. We welcome and encourage job applications from people of all backgrounds.

We particularly welcome applications from disabled and Black, Asian and Minority Ethnic (BAME) candidates as BAME and disabled people are currently under-represented throughout the WEA. We are committed to improving employment opportunities for ethnic minorities across the UK. We also welcome applications from, LGB and Trans and non-binary candidates. 

We have made a positive commitment to employing disabled people and guarantee to interview all disabled candidates who meet the minimum essential criteria for the role as set out in role profiles.
