Current Officers

Since our relaunch in 2009, the re-born Reading Branch of the WEA has become the third biggest WEA branch in the country, running 45 courses and study days in 2018/19. Each year has been more successful than the last, as measured by students attending, courses run, size of student base and the enthusiasm of our students. Our branch is organised by student volunteers for students, with, currently, a committee of 10.

As at 1st August 2016 the Committee members are:
