Job insecurity

Pros:- - Compared to colleges, admin work is on the lower end of the scale - Considerable freedom in terms of what and how you deliver sessions Cons:- - Courses come and go so there in this respect you never really know what the future holds - Enormous pressure to set up groups results in mixed level classrooms

Lack of leadership

Senior Management team let go Heads of Regions. Typical day at work, stress from when you start and never stops. Senior people do not give answers or fob you off. OFSTED, OFSTED, OFSTED. Change paperwork, dont consult staff and what will work and change it all, dont think about staff or tutors. Not about students led organisation, they dont seem to understand the WEA Ethos. Lining their own pockets making sure their salaries are above average and doesn't affect there cost of living... the list goes on No enjoyable parts of the job anymore.......

I loved the work and the learners but not the management. They treated me badly.

My lines person was a very nasty person and treated me badly. So I would not recommend WEA as a good place to work. I gave them 7 years of my life teaching the elderly and people with mental health problems.
