Memorable Tales: A History of the Workers' Educational Association (WEA) in the Highlands

Memorable Tales: A History of the Workers' Educational Association (WEA) in the Highlands Memorable Tales: A History of the Workers' Educational Association (WEA) in the Highlands

 As part of a Scotland-wide initiative WEA Highland is going to have the opportunity of exploring and capturing its own history through a grant made available through "All our Stories" from the Heritage Lottery Fund. Highland is home to two local associations: the WEA Inverness and Area Local association and the WEA North Highland Association, which have over 75 voluntary members between them.   As a leading provider of adult education, which takes place in a wide variety of settings in local communities as well as places of work, the WEA has over the years provided hundreds of people with that first step on the ladder by helping them to re-engage with their aspirations and discover hidden talents as well as gain new ones. As a result self-confidence blossoms and employment and life long learning pathways open up.   Perhaps you are one of those people who have benefited from a WEA opportunity- or perhaps you would like to become one! Either way please come and join us to find out how you can get involved by coming along to:  
Tuesday:    May 21st    Dingwall Community Centre                6:00 pm - 7:00 pm       or  Thursday:  May 30th   Inverness Library  (Reading Room)   12:30 pm - 1:30 pm   For further information please contact Sue Mitchell at WEA on 01463 710577
