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.
