Who we are and what we do 

We are the UK’s largest voluntary sector provider of adult education and teach more than 1,000 students in Cambridgeshire and Peterborough, targeting those furthest from work.

We help reach people others can’t and through learning we help people create positive life changes that ripple out from individuals to communities.

Our focus on employability, health and wellbeing, community engagement and culture directly addresses the vision for the region.

Where we operate

Our courses really are local – our students travel on average 3 miles to get to a course. See where we teach across the region here 


The WEA is working with partners on the Community Connections (South) project, a partnership designed to improve employment opportunities for people who are furthest from the job market, and who aren’t on any existing employment programmes.

The Project launched in Cambridgeshire and Peterborough and is funded by the Big Lottery Fund and the European Social Fund.


Our volunteers are at the heart of our work and are vital to supporting adult education across Cambridgeshire and Peterborough. 

We have 140 active volunteers, working in more than 20 branches in the region. They work with local teams to help to transform lives and communities through adult education.
