Exciting learning opportunities, open to everyone

The WEA (Workers’ Educational Association), which was set up in 1915, is the longest established provider of adult education in New Zealand.

This Kapiti Coast branch of the WEA was started in 1978, and is a non-profit making incorporated society registered with the Charities Commission (CC28153), and a member of the Federation of WEAs in Aotearoa New Zealand.

We promote ideals of a just, equitable and sustainable society through the medium of education.

We run two four-monthly programmes each year. Our courses cover a wide variety of relevant and stimulating subjects, taught by experts in their field.

We welcome suggestions for new courses. Please contact us about your ideas.
