Learning Support

If you have a disability, a learning difficulty, a health issue or other support needs, we will do our best to provide specialist staff and resources to help you succeed in learning. Here are some examples of help:

  • An assessment to find out what your needs are
  • Help getting round the building
  • Extra help in the classroom, e.g. someone to sign or take notes
  • Extra time in exams or assessments
  • Equipment such as hearing induction loops or magnifiers
  • Extra help or tutorials for English, Maths or study skills.

We are still learning about the best ways to help, so the important thing is to discuss your needs with us. The earlier you tell us about your needs the better. We will be able to provide help more quickly.

Financial help

Should you require advice on your finances, the WEA works with the Money Advice Service to provide free, impartial advice.

Courses are free if you want to develop your literacy and numeracy skills.

Contact your Regional Office to ask about having an assessment of your skills, about free courses and about taking a National Certificate in literacy or numeracy.

There will be a fee for most other courses.
