The WEA is a voluntary organisation which is committed to providing adult education through an inclusive, local and engaging way. Come and see what the WEA is all about...we may just have a course around the corner from you!
My name is Justina, I recently moved to the UK with my family, from Italy where we were living before. I have had this passion in me to work with children, but I had no idea how to go about it.
As part of National Volunteers’ Week (1-7th June 2015) we wanted to celebrate and showcase the sterling efforts of our volunteers and the valuable contribution they make to both the WEA and the wider community.
I was on an active in age course where Janet was the tutor. At that time I was having personal and family problems so my confidence was at a low ebb. I didn't feel that I would be able to cope with the course and the work it involved. But Janet made the course very interesting and enjoyable. She did not know about my problems but she sensed that I worried about the work so she encouraged and helped me by giving me the confidence to carry on.
