Westminster Adult Education Service

Local adult college, Westminster Adult Education Service (WAES), is looking for business leaders to support their important work in the local community. 

WAES’ programmes reflect the skills and business requirements of Westminster and the wider London region, in areas such as digital and computing, business and accounting, creative arts and green skills. They play a key role in growing and developing the work force of the future. 

 WAES works to enable learners and their families to develop life study skills that give them the confidence to overcome adversity, develop resilience and thrive in the workplace. In addition to its more vocational programmes, it also offers English language courses to support Ukrainian and other refugees to develop the skills needed to access services and settle in the UK.   

The college’s main centre is in Lisson Grove, just north of Marylebone station, and they are looking for business representatives from the area to join its Board and support the delivery and development of its adult education programmes. If you are interested in this role and would like more information, get in touch with College Principal, Arinola Edeh here 

Case Study 

Naomi grew up in south London as one of six children to a single parent. As a teenager, she was diagnosed with dyslexia and dyspraxia and was bullied at school for being different. Through WAES, she has been able to study graphic design and then web design, while continuing her job as a mental health nurse. She has since achieved a Level 3 NCFE Certificate which she hopes to put to good use, working for charities and other organisations to help them make their websites more accessible and user-friendly.
