The Workers Educational Association provides a comprehensive learning programme as a first step back into education for people who may have had negative experiences at school. The five most common subject areas are English for Speakers of Other Languages, literacy, numeracy, computer skills and study skills.
Courses are run locally, either through one of the Association’s 450 branches or in partnership with local groups, charities and other organisations. To find a course near you, follow this link.
Courses are free if you are aged 16-18 and you want to develop your literacy and numeracy skills. You may be able to get all or part of the course fee paid if you are on an income-based benefit or on a low income.
The Workers Education Association also runs “Community Involvement” courses for people who want to develop their skills and knowledge in order to play a fuller role in their community. The five most common subject areas for these courses are crafts and creative arts, computer skills, health, family learning and courses for trade union activists.
A third stream of courses are for older people who want to increase their understanding of particular subjects, but not typically to gain qualifications. The top five “Cultural Studies” subject areas are art (including art appreciation and art history) history, literature, creative writing, music and science.
