The WEA 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, schools and almost anywhere else you can think of. We see education as a tool for social justice, not just self-improvement, and we pride ourselves on making learning accessible. Volunteers play a central role in everything we do, from governance through to classroom support, helping us deliver courses to 50,000 people in 2,300 locations – and enabling us to work in nearly every local authority area.
About the role
Providing comprehensive administrative support to our local educational staff, volunteers and tutors, you will enjoy involvement in student recruitment, publicity and marketing and supporting course delivery. We are keen to hear from people who have experience of working in the education sector or community outreach. Wherever you fit in, we’ll give you everything you need to stand out – and make a measurable difference every day.
Our students come from every walk of life, and we want to be as diverse as they are, so we are keen to hear from candidates from minority backgrounds. However, it’s not about where you’ve come from so much as what you can contribute: we need someone with great organisational skills, a strong administrative background and the highest standard of IT literacy. Needless to say, you will be self-motivated, team-spirited and very flexible, and you will share our passion for education to bring about social change.
