The Workers' Educational Association is Britain's major voluntary adult education organisation. The WEA exists to provide high quality learning opportunities for adults from all walks of life. You don't need any previous knowledge or qualifications to join most of our courses, only a willingness to share with others your ideas and experience. If you want to see if a course is for you, you are welcome to come along to the first meeting without obligation.
Northamptonshire WEA provides a wide variety of interesting courses throughout the County. In particular, it provides courses in the villages and towns of Northamptonshire organised by local branch representatives after consulting with participants. We also do other activities like seasonal walks and excursions.
