The WEA branches offer a wide range of courses in Essex. Our tutors have great enthusiasm and often have years of experience in teaching or researching their subject.

Most of the courses run over seven or eight weeks and allow you to explore a subject in great depth and detail. Others are One day schools.

The WEA is non-political and non-sectarian. What brings people together is the wish to further their knowledge in their particular choice of subject in a friendly, informal atmosphere. Opportunities for further research and in-depth study are always available but no written work is required during the courses.

Discounted fees are sometimes available.
