Summarise the key aspects of current legislative requirements and codes of practice relevant to your subject and the type of organisation within you would like to work.

I work for Westminster Adult Education Service.   This is a government Institution.   I work as a part-time ESOL tutor.
WAES is a Higher Education provider. Its aim is to provide education and training programmes to help students with career access, such as higher level courses or university.

    • Estates

    • Health and Safety
    • Human Resources
    • Student Support

For example, The Curriculum Policy reviewed by the Director of Curriculum & Quality in March 2009, underpins the commitment of the Service to plan, offer and deliver high quality programmes of learning which meet the needs of learners. Within this policy there are:

    • Assessment Policy
    • Class closure
    • Internal Verification
    • Quality Policy
    • Tutorial Policy
    • Withdrawal Policy

Within the Health and Safety Policy, it includes:
