Who are the WEA?
We are a leading adult education charity with a legacy that stretches back over a hundred years, having been founded back in 1903.
Our mission is to bring adult education within reach of everyone who needs it, fighting inequality and promoting social justice.
Today, we continue to empower adults by bringing great teaching to local communities across England and Scotland, reaching tens of thousands of learners each year.
We believe every adult from a variety of backgrounds should have access to education and its benefits right on their doorstep.
