Adult Education with the WEA


On 8 February 2016 Wessex Archaeology will be signing a memorandum of understanding with the Workers’ Educational Association (WEA) setting out our joint aim of building a lasting link between learning and heritage.  
This new partnership is the result of a lot of groundwork (no digging!) done by Rachel Brown, our Community & Education Officer, working with the WEA’s tutors to develop new ways of encouraging a wider public engagement with our cultural heritage. 
The agreement will be signed at the WEA’s Omega Centre in Portsmouth at the launch of one of these projects, an Archaeology Day offering adult learners the opportunity to develop an appreciation of heritage and archaeology – through maths, English and art. This will lead into specific lessons using archaeology-themed resources created by Rachel. She has certainly not been short of ideas, and we look forward to telling you about other projects as they evolve.
