WEA Awards 2021

2019/20 was not the year we expected, but here at the WEA, we reached over 40,000 adults supporting them not only with vital skills for changing careers but giving them a lifeline.

Our WEA Awards took place on 6th May, and were a fantastic opportunity to celebrate our students’ achievements and the quality of teaching and support our tutors provide.  

The panel, including our Chair of Trustees, President of Council and CEO were so impressed by the quality of applications this year. 

We also had the most nominations ever received!

Our Awards ceremony also inaugurated two new WEA Fellows. WEA Fellowships are awarded to distinguished public figures who have made a special contribution to adult education, and who are passionate about the WEA's wider social justice objectives.

Congratulations Sir Malcolm Grant and Ruth Spellman in becoming WEA Fellows.
