Not everyone has access to the opportunities provided by education. We believe they should. That’s why we at the WEA help adults learn, no matter where they are, no matter what their circumstances.

We’ve been helping adults to learn since 1903, and with 2,300 course locations around the country, it means there is a WEA within the reach of 80% of the people that need it most. We take our courses out into communities nationwide, reaching people that conventional adult education can’t because they are often the ones that need it most.

Our professional tutors take the time to build trust and empathy with each student we teach, so we understand how learning can improve their lives, not just what their learning needs are inside the classroom. See how WEA courses have changed the lives of people like Lisa, Margaret, a community in Rochdale and many more people by reading our inspiring stories.
