Welcome to the Workers’ Educational Association, Norwich Branch – the UK’s largest voluntary sector provider of adult learning.

As one of the largest WEA branches in the region we offer a lively programme of friendly, informal courses with expert tutors, open to everyone. There are no exams or tests and you don’t need any prior qualifications to learn with WEA. We’re always adding to our list of courses and we hope you’ll enjoy browsing here to see what’s on offer.

More information about the ‘traditional’ WEA programme

The Norwich Branch Committee has regretfully come to the decision to postpone all our face-to-face courses and day schools for Autumn 2020 and Spring 2021.   It is our hope that the programme we planned – which is full of interesting and new learning – will be available the following academic year 2021/22.  This year’s  cancelled Summer Programme of courses, day schools and visits will – we hope – be available in the summer of 2021, something to look forward to.

However – in the event that our venues, tutors and students are all out of lock-down by the Spring of 2021 – we will then endeavour to offer a limited face-to face  programme in our usual venues, as far as this is possible.    Keep a link to this website for up to date information!

Meanwhile – the  Norwich Branch Committee would like to thank all of our students for their enthusiasm and loyalty over many years – and we very much look forward to seeing you all again in the not too distant future
