We are part of the UK’s largest voluntary sector provider of adult education in England and Scotland.   

The WEA provides courses that fall into three categories: 

  • Recreational courses:  For life-long learners, who enjoy the social aspect of studying with like-minded people in their area.  
  • Workplace courses:  For learners interested in professional development opportunities, building confidence and skills for work.  
  • Community courses:  For learners wishing to gain basic skills to improve their quality of life.  

Our Branch provides recreational courses, either as online sessions during the week or in-person Saturday schools at RISC in the centre of Reading.   

Our 2023-4 programme includes Art Appreciation, Architecture, Archaeology, Literature, Music, Philosophy and Politics, all delivered by professional Tutors.

We very much hope you will find a course that interests you and look forward to welcoming you to a Reading Branch event in the near future.
