Welcome to the UK’s largest voluntary sector provider of adult education in England and Scotland.

Founded in 1903, the WEA (Workers’ Educational Association) is a charity dedicated to bringing high-quality, professional education into the heart of communities. Last year we helped 28,219 students, with the support of nearly 2,000 volunteers, 900+ tutors and over 6,000 members. 

We deliver friendly, accessible and enjoyable courses for adults from all walks of life.

Assessed ‘Good’ by Ofsted in 2018, we have classes in almost every area of England and Scotland.

Why the need for the WEA?
