Working with partners across Scotland to improve communication

Communication is essential to everyday life. It helps learners build relationships and understand the world we live in. Improving your communication skills allows learners to connect with other people, access learning pathways, and to progress in their workplace.  Learning with the WEA is not like school. It’s learning made for adults, and you’ll be taught by supportive tutors. 

Learners can boost their English skills and get a better understanding of grammar. Improve their spelling and gain confidence in reading. We also provide the opportunity to learn the basics and build the skills to gain an SQA Core Skills Award in Communications at SCQF Level 2 - 4. Improving your reading and writing as an adult is not as hard as you might think.

Communicating Confidently
This communication skills course can help learners feel more comfortable in conversations, meetings, or when speaking in public. If you struggle to find your voice or get your point across, this communication skills course can help you feel more comfortable in conversation. By learning effective tools and techniques to improve communication skills our courses will help learners gain confidence whether they want to feel more comfortable meeting new people, holding union meetings or participating in community discussions.

Creative courses
Please see our Creative Literacies page, where communication skills are embedded in creative courses such as creative writing, poetry, songwriting and journalling for wellbeing.

Enjoyable and sociable. Just being part of a group of learners/friends was great.
