English at the Mary Ward Centre

Our English section is an important part of Essential Skills & Languages and we need tutors to join our existing team. Some of the English Literacy courses will begin in September, they will be on various days at different times and will be taught in a range of centres across Southwark and East London. Tutors on these courses will be expected to work peripatetically. Others will be at our Blackfriars centre in Southwark.

General Information

The Mary Ward Centre offers high quality adult education and community services, covering the areas of Digital Media, Computing & IT, Business and Management, English and Maths, Languages, Humanities and Social Sciences, Health and Social Care, Writing and Publishing, Visual Arts, Music and Singing. 

In the current academic year (2022-23) the centre’s main premises are at Queen Square in Holborn and we also hold sessions at our other site at Blackfriars Settlement, 1 Rushworth Street SE1 0RB, which is a short walk from Waterloo and Southwark underground stations. From academic year 2023-24 our main site will move to a new purpose-built premises on Stratford High Street, 10 minutes’ walk from the main train and bus station and 5 minutes from Stratford High Street DLR. We will continue to deliver courses from the Blackfriars settlement as well.  Our students will continue to come from all walks of life, living both locally and London wide (and beyond). Their education, work and life experience varies enormously.

In recent years, we have also expanded our provision of courses to include some courses delivered partly or wholly online via the Zoom platform.  We may consider running a course in this mode of delivery if in our view there is a compelling reason to do so.

The deadline to submit application forms is Monday 17th April 2023.
