WEA Press Office

We are the UK’s largest voluntary sector provider of adult education. We teach 50,000 students a year and run 8,000 courses. For tens of thousands of people across the UK, community and adult learning provides a life raft to a better future. The impact is not only on employability but their health and wellbeing, family life and community engagement.
