WEA Adult Learning Eastern Region

Coronavirus Support

All of our classes are currently being offered on-line through Zoom and the learning platform Canvas.  Classes are kept small (maximum of 20  which allows for good interaction between the tutor and students.  Feedback from current and past classes has been extremely positive with most students saying the experience has been positive and 'almost' real-life.

General Details

We are the UK's largest voluntary sector provider of adult education and  believe all adults should have access to the opportunities of education right on their doorstep.  In the Eastern region we offer a wide range of skills-based, cultural, and personal development courses which are designed to enable you to feel better equipped with the skills to take on tomorrow or simply to learn for the joy of it - to make good things happen in our communities and society.
