Welcome to the WEA Eastern Region.
The regional team organises and supports approximately 1,000 courses each year, which are taught by more than 300 professional course tutors.
We have 122 branches within the region which offers a diverse range of provision, and along with our targeted work within the community (and in partnership with other like minded organisations), we have more than 8,000 individual learners which equates to approximately 14,000 enrolments each year.
We are Government funded and provide courses for adults which support our special mission to provide educational opportunities to those facing social and economic disadvantage.
Our approach to teaching is learner led and flexible. We work with all concerned to ensure the learning needs of our students are met and in a location with which they feel confident and comfortable. All of our classes in the Eastern region are delivered in the heart of local communities. We want education to be as accessible as possible and we do this by bringing the opportunities to the community.
Our inspirational tutors are employed to deliver a wide ranging course programme and are supported by our committed volunteers.
