New blog series explains WEA Manifesto

The WEA is launching a series of five blog posts by CEO Simon Parkinson to explain the manifesto in the Impact Report. 

The manifesto outlines ways the Government can minimise the inequalities through adult education by helping vulnerable and disadvantaged adults to create a more equal and sustainable society. 

Simon Parkinson said: 

“Each blog post explains in detail why our five Government ‘asks’ matter and outline the options available. The contents of these points shape our Autumn campaign and build on the levelling-up momentum.” 

WEA sets out manifesto to "level-up" opportunity


The UK Government is proposing to reform the funding system for further education in England. We want to ensure this results in opportunity reaching those who need it most – leaving no-one behind. 

We've asked for just five things, in addition to partnering with us to benefit from our unique reach and experience.
