About the WEA
The Workers Educational Association was started in 1903 to provide access to learning for working people when educational opportunity was limited. Today it is the UK’s largest voluntary sector provider of adult education. The WEA operates at local, regional and national levels through regional offices and volunteer-led branches like the Norwich branch.
We aim to provide friendly, informal and enjoyable courses with expert tutors. There is no need to have prior knowledge of the course subject nor do you need to have any academic qualifications. In fact, most people come on courses to explore new ideas and topics. There are no exams or tests!
Our branch is run by a local committee of volunteers , listed below. The committee decides on the annual programme, sorts out venues and helps to ensure that courses run smoothly for tutors and members.
- the Norwich Branch brochures can be found in the carousels provided by Creative Arts East at various locations around the city – including the Forum, Assembly House and other arts venues
- the annual County brochures for the whole of Norfolk – including Norwich – are also in the carousels from July
- brochures are also available at The King’s Centre in King Street
- you can call Annette on 01603 629557 if you require a posted copy.
There are no WEA classes during school half terms. In ten-week courses, the break will be after your fifth session.
