Tailored Training for those working in Schools - WFALS

About our service

We are Waltham Forest Council’s direct provider of adult education and work based training and we design courses to meet the training needs of your individual school.

If you have a group of staff that need training we will design a bespoke course specific to your organisation that can be run at a venue convenient to your staff. Courses are both generic, to support all staff, as well as specific to schools. Schools can select from the range of courses and create a programme to meet their own needs. We can also help you to complete an organisational needs analysis to identify training needs for individuals or groups of staff.

What we offer

This service will help you maximise the potential of all staff within your school, from caretakers to reception staff and teaching assistants to heads. We have a range of courses available in the following areas:

  • Teaching and childcare
  • Computer skills
  • First aid and health & safety
  • Care and childcare
  • Skills for frontline staff
  • Writing for work

Benefits of using our service
