Across Bradford
 from September 2010




    Yorkshire & Humber Region
The WEA provides learning to cover a vast range of
interests. Our staff and voluntary Branch members
organise the courses to match what we call our
educational strands:

Second Chance to Learn - for those people who have
little previous formal education and want to progress
towards qualifications

Community Involvement - for those who would like to
develop their confidence, their skills and their
involvement with their community

Cultural Studies - for those with a ‘love of learning’
who want to develop an understanding of a subject for
‘its own sake’

For more information www.wea.org.uk/yh
We hope you will enjoy browsing through this
brochure and find an enjoyable and stimulating
course to suit you.

The Skills Funding Agency (SFA) is our main
funder and subsidises courses. There is no fee
increase in the Region this year but the SFA
expects most learners to contribute an agreed
proportion to the cost of their courses. We hope
you will feel it is good value for money as you
learn alongside other interested people and a
professional tutor. (There is more detail about
fees over the page in ‘Your Questions
answered’)

Please let us know if you think that there are
other courses which we should be offering.
The WEA is a voluntary organisation with many
Branches run by volunteers. Would you like to
join them or to become a WEA member?
We would love to hear from you!
   Your questions answered
  We will do everything we can to make your learning experience
  with us a positive one.
Is the course right for me?
If you haven't done so already, you can find out whether the course is suitable for you by
ringing 0113 245 3304.
Come along to the first session without obligation so that you can see if the course suits
your needs.
How do I join a course?
It is usually possible to just turn up at the first meeting but we would encourage you to find
out more beforehand. To do this please contact 0113 245 3304. If pre-booking is required
details are given with the course information.
How much will I pay?
For the majority of courses you will have to pay a fee. The fees to be paid are shown
against each course.
For most of our courses, our subsidised funding is only available for people who are 19 or
over – if they were born before 31 August 1991. If you are younger than this please contact
the Regional Office for advice.
You are entitled to FREE tuition if you are in receipt of or are dependent upon someone in
receipt of:

     l Job seekers' allowance            l Council tax benefit                      l Working tax credit
     l Income support                    l Housing benefit                          l Pension Guarantee Credit
     l Income-related Employment Support Allowance                            PROOF OF STATUS WILL BE REQUIRED.


You may notice slight differences in the course fees organised by different Branches – this is
because some Branches have to meet higher costs for the venues they use.
Are your venues easily accessible?
Many of our venues have disabled access but please check with us beforehand as we can
supply a portable ramp if needed. Information for most of our venues is available on the
regional website.
I have difficulties with reading and writing. Can I still join a course?
Yes, not only are our courses open to everyone but we can also help you to improve your
reading, writing and maths.
My eyesight/hearing is poor. Can I still come along?
Of course you can. Again let us know in advance and we can supply you with
enlarged/Braille materials or a hearing loop if necessary.
