The Workers' Education Association

The Workers’ Educational Association - also known as the WEA - is the UK’s largest voluntary-sector provider of adult education.

It was founded in 1903, in order to support the educational needs of working men and women who could not afford to access further or higher education. Today the WEA provides courses for all kinds of adults and maintains its special mission to provide educational opportunities to adults facing social and economic disadvantage.

Nationwide, the WEA runs over 10,000 part-time adult education courses each year and they are one of the UK’s biggest charities, operating at local, regional and national levels through their regional offices and volunteer-led branches.

 

For more information, please contact their local volunteer Branch Secretary Linda Salkeld by calling 01472 200329, 07732559587, or email: .
