We have encountered a few issues recently with sessional staff expenses being submitted later than the specified deadline for them to be received. Please be aware that expenses must be claimed within 4 weeks of the end of the course activity which gave rise to them. The decision to pay any expense items claimed after this will be at the discretion of the relevent Regional Education Manager, this can cause payments to be delayed substantially.
The deadline date for receipt of expenses claims is the last working day of the month, for inclusion in the next month’s payroll. The pat date each month is the 15th; where this falls on a weekend or bank holiday, the pay date will be the last working day immediately prior to the 15th. Any expense received at the regional office after the deadline date will be held over until the following month’s payroll.
If you have any queries or need further clarification please contact regional office on 0115 9628400

The vision of WEA nationally is: 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
WEA nationally has been working to strengthen the link with social purpose in our curriculum and giving a lot of thought to how all tutors can more explicitly build social purpose into their course and session planning. As a result a study module has been written and is available on the internet using the following link:
http://www.wea-yh.org.uk/esp/index.html and the registration code: 2TAL7nd4

Hurst House (Chesterfield) 10th May 10.30 – 12pm
Contact Julie Caley email@example.com
101, Leicester 2nd June 1 – 2.30pm

Please ensure that you book in advance
You will be paid £35.55 (plus travel) to complete the module and attend the meeting
I have received this information from my Department of Work and Pensions contact. Students will be able to prove that they are attending our classes by the methods below:
“A number of customers will have a document called My Work Plan that will record everything they do each week-a diary if you like. Tutors are welcome to sign this. Some Esol courses are typing up some type of document each week as part of their course work which has proved useful. It records their timetable, progress and attendance etc.”
This is useful to us as a means of preventing students from being forced to do other learning options or being given inconvenient sign in times. The WEA is an approved provider and local Job Centres are aware of this.
If you have any issues that arise with your students around this, please contact your Organiser.
Can you teach WordPress? Are you also up to speed with using social networking to promote products or services? Are you free on 2 Saturdays in each of the months of November, March and May? If the answer is ‘Yes’ then please get in touch with Helen Salisbury, Organiser at 101 Hinckley Road, Leicester LE3 0TD. Email: firstname.lastname@example.org
Are you free on a Monday evening? The WEA 101 branch in Leicester city centre is looking for a tutor, 6.30 to 8.30 pm, starting in September. Good IT qualifications needed. The awarding body requires that you hold OCR CLAiT levels 1 and 2 yourself, but these could be completed in the interim. Interested?

Can you offer a basic/beginners upholstery course in Nottinghamshire this autumn? if not do you know someone who can?
I reckon the time is ripe to get on the vintage/recycling/home-made articles band wagon and offer an early evening course on upholstery. Cannot find any other provider doing this locally – let’s be the first!
Interested? email@ firstname.lastname@example.org

As tutors for the WEA, you are often providing lots of information and advice to students about how to progress, what to do next, future courses and often you even support students with personal problems giving useful phone numbers and addresses to help them.
If you are interested in finding out more and improving what you do as well as discussing and sharing your current practice, please come to the training I have organised this term.
