Founded in 1903, the Workers' Educational Association (WEA) is a charity and the UK’s largest voluntary sector provider of adult education. We believe learning is for everyone and learning is for life. It can be life-enhancing and life-changing – improving health, self-confidence and creating positive changes that ripple out from individuals to communities.
Over the last 6 months the North West Branch has been developing a range of Environmental courses designed to give students a taste of studying and working in the outdoors with the concept of sustainability at their heart. They range from weekend introductory courses such as Introduction to Woodland Management C3836725 and Introduction to Forest Schools C3836732, to accredited courses like the Permaculture Design Course C3836723.
All these courses can be studied as stand alone courses or combined and built up over time to give the learner a deeper understanding and a variety of practical experiences working sustainably in the outdoors.
