Bringing adult learning within reach
The WEA works with hundreds of partners every year to bring adult learning within reach for thousands of learners each and every year.
Our partnerships play a vital role in reaching communities that other organisations cannot.
These partnerships range from large-scale projects working with adults facing multiple disadvantages to small projects working with local delivery partners in communities.
We work with over 450 partners and these partnerships play a vital role in our delivery, enabling us to reach 30,000 learners across England and Scotland each year.
The WEA has over 100 funded education contracts outside our ESFA and devolved adult education budget funded contracts. These range from large scale projects working with adults facing multiple disadvantage to small projects working with local delivery partners in communities to deliver ESOL, volunteering, digital, mental health courses and more.
You can learn more about some of our partners in our impact report.
As a voluntary sector organisation and a charity, we are really keen to work with partners across the country to develop opportunities and progression routes for all adults facing disadvantage in your communities.
