The Workers’ Educational Association - also known as the WEA - is the UK’s largest voluntary- sector provider of adult education. It was founded in 1903, in order to support the educational needs of working men and women who could not afford to access further or higher education.

Today it provides courses for all kinds of adults but maintains its special mission to provide educational opportunities to adults facing social and economic disadvantage.
