Help our committed learners master English

Learning support / Mentoring volunteers needed for Reading Workers’ Education Association (WEA)

The WEA is a national voluntary organisation that organises a huge range of classes for adults.

We’re looking for people who would like to volunteer in one of our adult English groups to help people new to this country learn how to read, write and speak English. You’d be working alongside one of the experienced teachers in a small, lively friendly group of highly committed learners.

You don’t need any teaching qualifications – just a real interest in helping people pick up these essential skills.
