WEA Confidence Building workshops, held in the morning, encourages students to explore themselves through a wide range of exercises which helps boost confidence. Activities are well planned and catered to the needs of learners giving them the opportunity to share experiences through positive and creative activities. Students learn strategies to communicate with their peers and develop relationships.
In the afternoon there are two workshops, Art and Dance.
The WEA Creative Arts Students have developed into an enthusiastic group with lots of ambition to learn more art skills and gain knowledge. The students always get really involved with each theme and art project, bringing in library books, photographs and images, so encouraging group discussions, which promotes further interest and engagement in their local community, as well as enriching the learning experience.
WEA Dance Workshops are also held upstairs in the large studio. This group discuss what dances they will do over a term period. They decide on the music and choregraph the dance accordingly with a view to an end performance to friends and family and also in a public place.
Several study visits are organized each year including an educational tour or talk. The students love these excursions and have become much more confident at exploring these amazing public places of interest independently and will take friends too, so truly engaging in their own community.
