The Workers’ Educational Association is a unique charity and the UK’s largest voluntary sector provider of adult education. With a clear vision and a strong social purpose, we bring great teaching to local communities, with life-changing courses held in community centres, workplaces and schools. Since 1903, we have been giving disadvantaged people the opportunity to return to learning – inspiring them to realise their full potential and become active, engaged citizens. We see education as a tool for social justice, not just self-improvement, and we pride ourselves on making learning accessible.
About the role
Developing and delivering our educational programme in Cambridgeshire, you will ensure that our students enjoy an outstanding experience. At the heart of our closely-knit area team, you will support and manage tutors, engage volunteers and local branches, and identify opportunities to grow work to meet local needs, including supporting and developing funding bids. You will also support us to ensure the quality of our provision and actively promote our crucial work – so every day will bring different challenges. This role is home-based but you will be expected to travel extensively around Cambridgeshire.
Empowering people from all walks of life is what we’re all about, so we’re keen to hear from people in disadvantaged or underrepresented groups. Whatever your background, you will need a degree level education plus teaching and assessor qualifications, alongside extensive experience of developing tutors, co-ordinating diverse stakeholders and building voluntary or membership organisations. You should be exceptionally organised and methodical, with great leadership and coaching skills – and you will be ready to make your mark from day one.
To apply, please send your CV to firstname.lastname@example.org . You must also send a covering letter stating how you meet the person specification. We advise you to complete your application as soon as possible, as we reserve the right to close this advert early.
