Atwea College (previously WEA Hunter) has a long and proud history as the leading provider of community based adult learning in the Hunter Region. WEA Hunter (Worker’s Educational Association – Hunter) is a public company limited by guarantee. It is an independent non-profit community based organisation whose sole aim is to promote and provide educational opportunities for adults.

Since 1913, WEA Hunter has delivered a diverse range of learning opportunities for all sections of our community. The Workers' Educational Association originated in England and was introduced into Australia in 1913. In its heyday it operated in every state except Western Australia and the Northern Territory. Nowadays, the WEA exists in New South Wales (Newcastle, Sydney and Wollongong) and in South Australia (Adelaide).

WEA Hunter is the 5th largest provider of community based adult learning in NSW* and when Government Contract Training, Business and Industry Training and Youth Programs are added – this not only makes WEA Hunter one of the largest but also one of the most diverse training providers in NSW.

While most of our income is generated from the general community, we also successfully tender for government funded and private sector business funded courses and programs. A course guide is produced and distributed, detailing all programs available as fee-for-service. WEA Hunter is committed to ensuring training is available to all sectors of the community, including business operators and corporate clients. WEA Hunter offers between 250 and 350 courses each year.

WEA Hunter is accredited by the Australian Skills Quality Authority (ASQA), as a Registered Training Organisation (RTO).

WEA Hunter has campuses at Newcastle and Tuncurry.
