The WEA was established in 1903 and has provided part time courses for adults for nearly 120 years. 

Why are we different? 

All of our courses are live and tutor-led, unlike other learning providers. We use platforms like Zoom and Canvas, to allow learners to work together, make new friends and get feedback on work. 

"I liked the fact that I could do my work at home, when I wanted to. The tutor could comment on our work. We could see other people's work. there was time to speak on Zoom to others too".

Our nationally-recognised qualifications can increase your skills and confidence.  Helping you improve your chances of getting a good job.

These FREE* courses are online, so wherever you are in the country you can access it. You will still get the same support from our friendly tutors.
