The WEA has teamed up with the University of Liverpool to encourage more people to take up sciences.
Leading practitioners and academics from the university are working with the WEA to create a programme that will engage groups which are currently under-represented in STEMM (science, technology, engineering, maths and medicine) industries.
Ruth Spellman, Chief Executive of the Workers' Educational Association, responds to the Spring Budget 2017:
