There are still spaces available on this training event to be held in Loughborough on Monday 1st September 1-3pm.
If you would be interested in teaching literacy to a group in Selston on a Monday afternoon, please contact Julie Brooks at email@example.com. I have been contacted by a Surestart worker there who has 6 people waiting to do a course and is confident that more students could be found if a group could be set up. The course would be held in the IT Suite at the Tin Hat Centre, Selston. No start date as yet, as I need to find a tutor first!

Meet Lorna Poole, a WEA tutor specialising in the areas of Creative Writing and Social Media.
You can read about Lorna here: http://weatutor.wordpress.com/meet-the-tutor/lorna-poole/
As you are aware, the WEA is asking all tutors to complete a module in social purpose education as part of the WEA vision:
A better world – equal, democratic and just; through adult education the WEA challenges and inspires individuals, communities and society and amongst the statements in our mission are that we:
- involve students and supporters as members to build an education movement for social purpose
- inspire students, teachers and members to become active citizens
Are you available over the summer?
Would you be interested in participating in a pilot to complete the social purpose discussions on-line, instead of attending one of the face to face meetings?
Then why not sign up?
You will need to be available from 6th – 27th August to complete the social purpose module and participate in the on-line discussion board activities. The discussions will be linked directly to the module content, and will encourage you to reflect on ways of incorporating social purpose principles into your own curriculum area.
On completion of the module and active participation in the on-line discussion activities, you will be paid £35.55.
If you would like to take part, please email Jan Ball: firstname.lastname@example.org
More information about the social purpose module and related resources can be found at: http://weatutor.wordpress.com/social-purpose-education-resources/
