The Workers' Educational Association (WEA) is Britain's major voluntary adult education organisation run "by the students for the students".
It is recognised and supported by central and local government. Each year its 10,000 courses, day schools and other activities complement those available via Adult Education Centres.
They tend to be non-vocational, often with a local interest.
Further details are in the brochure WEA Courses for Adults - copies at Faversham Library - which covers the entire Kent area.
Meetings tend to be informal, participation is encouraged.
