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!
