|Learn with Us|
Are you interested in doing some training, updating your skills, or just want to learn something new? Well, the WEA can help you!
The WEA has been providing education to adults for over a century and in doing so has built up an extensive menu of courses by listening to the needs of our learners.
For Groups We have a wide selection of courses both accredited and non-accredited to choose from - if you are interested on behalf of a group and don’t see what you’re looking for please get in touch by e-mailing who may be able to tailor a workshop or course to meet your needs. Our Course Pricelist can be found below. Workshops and courses can be delivered on site in a community centre or organisation; or alternatively the WEA has its own fully furnished training suite which can be hired out. Click here for further information.

For Individuals The WEA can help you broaden your knowledge and improve your skills by providing flexible learning solutions in the form of workshops and short courses. We recently launched our first ‘Training Calendar’ which provides bitesize chunks of learning for those wishing to enhance, update or gain new skills. At present we are publicising our Autumn 2011 programme. Click here for further information.
QUALITY PROVISION The WEA invests heavily in quality assuring the learning we provide and the results have been recognised not just by the organisations and learners who have been in receipt of our provision (as can be seen from the statistics and quotes below), but also by external assessment.
The WEA is approved for the delivery and examination of courses by 10 awarding bodies and over the past year some of these bodies have recognised the quality of learning delivered and achieved with a number of awards.
"Over the past 6 years the WEA has been very supportive to the JIMS centre, providing courses in basic ICT and more recently digital photography. The courses are of excellent quality and all are recognised qualifications. JIMS really needs the WEA to continue providing top class adult education classes for the local community in Kilkeel."
