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. 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.
The role will have responsibility for delivery of complex AEB contracts across the North East area. In line with contract requirements and Association strategic objectives this role will support the Head of region in successfully delivering contract requirements whilst focusing on continuous improvement. You will work closely with a broad range of internal and external stakeholders including LEPs (or equivalent), local authorities, community organisations, employers, and trade unions.
They will report to the Mayoral combined authority skills team and internally within WEA taking appropriate actions on contract performance where appropriate.
