The Holocaust Centre promotes an understanding of the roots of discrimination and prejudice, and the development of ethical values, leading to a greater understanding within society. The Centre uses the history of genocide as a model of how society can break down, and emphasises how current and future generations must carefully examine and learn from these tragedies. The Centre promotes respect for human rights, equal opportunities and good citizenship, which has greater resonance than ever in our culturally diverse society.
The Holocaust Centre provides a range of facilities for people of all backgrounds to explore the history and implications of the Holocaust. These include the Holocaust exhibition, The Journey, memorial gardens, bookshop and coffeeshop. There are also seminar and research facilities for students, teachers, scholars, professionals and many others.
As the largest voluntary sector provider of adult education, we deliver over 9,500 part-time courses for over 70,000 students across England and Scotland. We bring education into the heart of communities, providing high-quality, student-centred and tutor-led education to adults, whatever your age or stage in life.
Not everyone has access to the opportunities provided by education. We believe they should. That’s why we at the WEA help adults learn, no matter where they are, no matter what their circumstances.
We’ve been helping adults to learn since 1903, and with 2,300 course locations around the country, it means there is a WEA within the reach of 80% of the people that need it most. We take our courses out into communities nationwide, reaching people that conventional adult education can’t because they are often the ones that need it most.
Our professional tutors take the time to build trust and empathy with each student we teach, so we understand how learning can improve their lives, not just what their learning needs are inside the classroom. See how WEA courses have changed the lives of people like Lisa, Margaret, a community in Rochdale and many more people by reading our inspiring stories.
