Published on: 22nd June, 2021 in

Can you drive the delivery of a successful ESF/National Lottery Community Fund project working with those furthest from the labour market, helping them to progress into education or employment, for Britain`s leading educational charity?

The WEA is looking for a Project Education Coordinator (ref.1029) to deliver the Routes project around Bognor and the surrounding area.

This is a 21 hours-a-week role, fixed-term until 31 October 2022.  Salary £26,620 per annum pro rata.

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 learning and teaching held in clubs, workplaces, schools and almost anywhere else you can think of.

The Education Coordinator will be the face of the Routes Project, liaising and working with partners to create and manage participants` routes through the project. They will ensure all participants are given individually tailored journeys and regularly assessed to ensure their targets are realistic and manageable.

By creating good working relationships and communication between partners, you will enable the best and most appropriate service for our participants. This will, in turn, maintain a high profile with stakeholders and keep a high level of referrals.

Your delivery of advice, information and guidance in support of participants will enable them to progress into education or towards employment. It will be of the highest standard and consistency, as will your attention to compliance and paperwork completion. Where needed, you will support participants to enable them to access training online or in person.

The post holder will be expected to represent the WEA and promote both the Association, the project and the value of adult education in their area.

Empowering people from all walks of life is what we are all about, so we are keen to hear from people in disadvantaged or underrepresented groups. You should be exceptionally organised and methodical and ready to make your mark from day one.

Closing date for applications is 27th June 2021
