There’s a lot to be said about our roles as educators – and they don’t get easier when you have a class full of adults. I’m a Trainer and CEO of a company that runs various activities and training initiatives for the long-term unemployed, benefit claimants, and offenders – often referred to as the ‘welfare to work’ sector.


To ensure that my students don’t immediately ‘turn off’ by being consumed with the ‘what the hell could you know about my life?’ question; clearly my role, and how I execute it requires very special attention – as does that of all adult educators.


So I ask you; What is your role in the adult classroom? and, How do you connect with learners who initially consider themselves as from another world to you? As an adult educator, I feel that my purpose in a classroom is largely to share and ‘pass on’ the ideas and knowledge that have been passed onto me by others and various forms of learning. That is, to propose scenarios, make suggestions, and supply them with what I call ‘different lenses’ to look through upon life or a certain subject. With the obvious and given outcome of skills and knowledge acquisition aside, here’s what success in the adult classroom is for me: Success is measured when a student says they have seen something differently – whether it be a way of perceiving something, dealing with something, approaching something, other people or work, and most importantly themselves and their issues. Above attaining the learning outcomes of any course, I want my students to challenge their perspectives, and view them from a different standpoint to better their options, choices, and decision-making – not to necessarily change them. I want to enable my learners to grow from the inside out. In the welfare-to-work sector especially, an employability program is NOT just about producing a CV; it’s about enabling your learners to believe that they have skills worthy of shouting about to an employer.


I believe that all educators tend to have the common trait of ‘futurism’ about them. This is what enables them to see a great tree instead of a seed, a King instead of a Prince, an architectural feat instead of a building site. Use this trait to be inspiring, thought-provoking, and nurturing and you’ll create masterpieces in the form of efficacious lives.
