The People’s College, Adult Education Association, is a voluntary body with the status of charitable organisation.

Set up 1948, to provide workers’ education, it continues to provide general adult education – languages, social political studies, literature, art appreciation and cultural activities as well as personal development and communication skills – for trade unionists, their families and the general public.

This involves creating a space where workers can study, reflect on and react to their continually changing society as well as develop their intellectual, social and creative potential.
