With WEA we enjoy exploring new topics
over a ten week period in a relaxed and friendly atmosphere, led by tutors who
are very knowledgeable in their subjects and good at stimulating and supporting
discussion. The WEA is, in fact, a nationwide registered educational charity
with no party political or religious ties. It is the largest voluntary sector
provider of adult education in England and Scotland, covering a wide range of
classes. WEA is run locally by volunteers with professional area administration
and WEA freelance tutors.
No experience or previous qualifications
are necessary to join our courses , only an interest in the subject and a
curiosity to learn more in good company
Our local Ickleton and Chesterfords branch
is one of more than 25 in Cambridgeshire and has been running for more than 30
years. Two courses are held each year, in the autumn and spring terms. They are
held on 10 Wednesday mornings in Ickleton Village Hall at 10am. Sessions last
for 1.5 hours with coffee and tea served before the class from 9.45am. The
modern venue is very accessible with a hearing loop in the room and good
parking close outside.
Course details are published in village
newsletters, on posters and on websites as well as in the WEA course guide for
Cambridgeshire and Bedfordshire published in late spring. We also try to send
a newsletter to members in August.
