WEA Training for Tutors Opportunities

The WEA is committed to realising potential, not just for our students, but for our tutors and volunteers also. We are here to help you to develop skills and to help others learn and progress.

With that in mind, WEA tutors (and aspiring tutors), ‘watch this space’ for any future internal and external training opportunities.

We are keen to engage in a dialogue with our tutors regarding training needs and successes. You can contact us at nwstudentfeedback@wea.org.uk sharing which external training events you attend, what you thought of it, and how you might use the information to enhance the delivery of your WEA course or if it has given you any ideas for a new course.

Redmond’s Building, Brownlow Hill, Liverpool L3 5UG

Guest speaker: Professor Greg Whyte OBE 

Paul Nolan Project Director | The Mersey Forest Team invites you to the Natural Health Service Next Steps Conference in May. Paul states,’The Natural Health Service focuses on how we can use the natural environment as a health asset. We invite you to our conference to hear about the results of the work to date, improving health and reducing demand on health services, the plans for the future and the developing links with the NHS. With support from Big Potential, the Natural Health Service is working with health commissioners to help address local health needs – and help keep communities healthy.’

There will be guest speakers who will present on the national and international context. Pioneering delivery partners will showcase their approach, challenges and achievements, and provide practical resources for commissioners and practitioners to develop the Natural Health Service in their locality.

They will be exploring how agencies can address health inequalities in a cost-effective way using the benefits of the Natural Health Service and how we are able to measure and evaluate the impact and outcomes.
