The WEA is a charity and works across a large number of partnerships to deliver a wide range of courses and training opportunities to people over the age of 19 years.
We have specific partnerships with Open University and UNISON. In the SW we work in partnership at different levels from contract delivery of services to organisations and settings such as The North Somerset Education and Training Consortium – Carlton Centre, Headway Trust, University of Bristol Hospital Trust, Windmill Hill Farm, to other long-term collaborative working with Plymouth Mental Health Trusts and Longreach Drug & Rehabilitation Centre.
Through local projects we work closely with disability learning groups, local community groups, our own volunteers and we are networked into SW Forum, and Universities SW. We also have growing partnership arrangements with Plymouth and Exeter Universities, Dartington Hall and bodies such as National Trust and English Heritage. The nature of our work and structure of our delivery necessitates partnership working at local community level and we deliver many of our courses through community venues or at work-places or social centres.
WEA is a membership organisation. WEA members play an important role in supporting campaigns and adding the weight of an engaged membership to external consultations. Members are central to democratic decision making at all levels across the Association. They are also integral to sustaining the WEA financially through fundraising and lobbying and by becoming active volunteers.
