ESOL tutors' training session

Our qualified tutors provide free English courses for staff, based on workplace communication.

If you are working in Edinburgh or West Lothian and English is your second language you may be able to take part in a 
WEA English course in your place of work. Our courses are designed to:

  • Help you communicate better with colleagues and friends
  • Build your confidence
  • Help you get more from your job
  • Improve your career prospects
  • Prepare you for further learning

We will assess your spoken and written English skills. We will ask you what you would like to learn and we will ask managers and supervisors about the English needed in your workplace. We will then plan a course to suit you. 

WEA English at Work courses are free, thanks to the support of the Scottish Government, the City of Edinburgh Council and West Lothian Council, and with your employer's help will be held in your workplace.  

Our employer partners include:
  • AK Stoddart, West Lothian
  • Tesco, West Lothian
  • NHS Lothian
  • Gucchi Restaurant and Seafood Bar, Edinburgh
  • Sikh Sanjog, Edinburgh
