Welcome to Coleg Harlech


WEA Cymru specialise in providing community education for Adults in Wales, classes at our Coleg Harlech campus are small and informal, tutors are experienced in teaching learners who have been out of education for a while.

About us

The WEA in Wales came into being in 1907, four years after the WEA in England. Founded by Albert Mansbridge in 1903, the Association was created as an alliance between labour (working classes) and learning (universities).

The WEA's ideological roots are shared with a clutch of 19th century initiatives, such as the mechanics institute, the co-operative movement and popular public lectures on science, all created to encourage and support the desire by working people for further learning throughout their lives. The Association remains a voluntary organisation run democratically through its branches and members, with many WEA learners actively involved in planning new learning.
