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!
The WEA has published new research into the impact of its courses as part of Adult Learners' Week 2013.
The report sets out findings from research with WEA students who completed their courses between September and December 2012 (download here). To coincide with the report, a review of the WEA in 2013 has also been published and is available for download here.
We all recognise that Equality and Diversity (E&D) is essential to teaching and learning. Yet we struggle when trying to embed it into practice creatively or when trying to evidence and demonstrate how it can have a positive impact on learners and the educational organisation.
Adult Learners' Week is almost upon us (18th- 24th of May 2013). To mark and celebrate the benefits of lifelong learning the WEA in the West Midlands will be taking part in the following activities:
WEA Learners from Worcestershire celebrated completing their 'Believe in yourself' wellbeing course last term. The course helps learners to build their self confidence and helps them find ways to begin taking charge and plan for their future.
Learners gain many health and wellbeing benefits from attending this course which they then go and apply into their daily lives. The course is continuing this term.
