From art to yoga, there is a subject for everyone to enjoy and the online delivery format has the potential to open up these popular local courses to a wider audience from the comfort of home.

The WEA have also launched the exclusive use of PIN codes - printed alongside each course name - allowing local students a window of priority enrolment up until Tuesday September 1, after which it will be ‘first come first served’ in terms of signing up for courses, subject to their availability.

George Cromack, tutor with the WEA, is teaching creative writing and film studies and said: “Here at the WEA, we are delighted to offer the latest batch of learning courses in this new world of ours.

"The outbreak of Covid-19 meant we had to adjust our tutoring and lecturing delivery to online platforms, which we’ve successfully piloted earlier in the summer.

“The online tutoring offers excellent interaction with learners and is the safest option given the current restrictions.”
