Workplace Learning

Laundry staff learning at work

The WEA in Edinburgh and the Lothians has a long and successful relationship working with trades union and employer partners to plan, organise and provide tailored learning programmes for staff. We work with people employed in a range of employment sectors in Edinburgh, East Lothian, Midlothian and West Lothian.

Some of our courses lead to a SQA qualification.

Check out the great writing by one of our literacy learners here.

Our provision includes:

  • Workplace Literacies courses to help people develop communication skills for work
  • English Language courses for people in the workplace whose first language is not English (ESOL)
  • Preparation for Retirement courses to enable older workers to get ready for and make the most of their retirement
  • Dyslexia Awareness Raising training courses for managers and supervisors to build your understanding of dyslexia and how you can support staff who have dyslexia
