A Night On The RAS

On Friday June 10th 2016 we held our first Night On The RAS event at Newton-le-Willows Family and Community Centre. What we failed to recognise was that it was also the start of a weekend of celebrations to mark the Queen's 90th birthday. We were up against some stiff competition but undeterred we steamed ahead with our fun filled family science event.

The North West Region's annual tutor conference took place on Saturday 4th June at Bridge 5 Mill Centre for Sustainable Living, MERCi, 22a Beswick Street, Ancoats, M4 7HR. This is also the venue for the new WEA Manchester office and tutors were pleasantly surprised by the friendly atmosphere and quirky surroundings.

Dear colleagues

We would like to invite you to the WEA North West Tutor Conference on Saturday 4th June 2016 from 9:45am to 3:00pm.

It is a chance to meet up with other tutors to talk about your WEA courses and share the successes and challenges of the past two terms. We will explore new curriculum ideas for September, discuss new processes and systems and look at ways to improve our students’ experience for 2016/17.
