Who we are

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 clubs, pubs, workplaces, schools and almost anywhere else you can think of. 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 egalitarian and 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 reach 80% of the population.

About the role

The post holder will be responsible for managing and delivering Information, Advice and Guidance as part of the Routes project, which engages participants with complex needs in order to build confidence and resilience and alleviate isolation. Duties will include supporting participants towards employability through delivering IAG, signposting for support as appropriate and providing on-going support and guidance.  The project is delivered in Chichester, Bognor and Littlehampton.

The successful applicant will be undertaking the tasks laid out under specialisms.

About you

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 to be highly organised and have experience of managing and delivering Information, Advice and Guidance
