About Atwea College
ATWEA College, formerly known as WEA Hunter (Worker’s Educational Association – Hunter), was established as a way of providing education to blue collar workers more than 100 years ago. 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).

Today, these humble beginnings remain a proud and fundamental part of our legacy, but we have become so much more. The organisation is now the fifth largest provider of community based education in NSW, offering a diverse range of senior secondary and vocational education to thousands of students across the state.

In keeping with this progress, and to help position the organisation for the future, WEA Hunter was recently renamed ATWEA College – a new name to unify our approach and unlock our potential.

Atwea makes a substantial contribution not just to the local economy but more importantly to the wellbeing of individuals within the community. Be it through skill enhancement, personal development or increased self-esteem, Atwea’s objective of being a conduit through which individuals unlock their potential is being realised every day. We hope that by contributing to the development of individuals, Atwea in turns allows those individuals to contribute fully to their community and society in general.

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. With around 350 courses being offered each year, Atwea is committed to ensuring training is available to all sectors of the community, including business operators and corporate clients.

No matter who the client is, Atwea’s aim is to enhances people’s lives by delivering quality learning, accessible to all.

Atwea is accredited by the Australian Skills Quality Authority (ASQA) as a Registered Training Organisation (RTO) and provides VET Student Loans eligible courses for full qualifications at Diploma level and above. Atwea is also a registered charity with the Australian Government’s Australian Charities and Not-for-profit Commission (ACNC).

A Board of Directors is elected annually. Full Board meetings are held every second month with the executive meeting in alternate months. The Board’s primary functions are to make policy decisions and oversee the direction and operation of the company. The Board appoints an Executive Director who is responsible for the efficient and effective running of the organisation and translating the Strategic Plan into operational activities
