Almost all our courses are delivered by our members. They range from formal classroom-based sessions or activities, through discussion groups with a coordinator and series of outings or lectures, to fitness classes.
If you have knowledge or expertise you would like to share with other U3AC members, we would like to hear from you!
Planning for the next academic year starts in February, when members submit proposals for new or repeated courses. We provide support and training, as well as the equipment you might need.
If you are interested in running a course, either in the Summer School (a great way to get started) or for one or more terms in the academic year, please contact the Office firstname.lastname@example.org or call 01223 321587.
The Tutor Support Handbook is a useful resource for all tutors and potential tutors. Part one covers planning and delivering a course, including advice on tutoring online with Zoom. Part two provides administrative support, with useful guidance about such things as registers, data protection and the use of premises and equipment.
The section of the Handbook that deals with Zoom is available as a separate document: The Zoom Cribsheet.

To keep costs to a minimum we will generally contact you by email (e.g. to advise you of amendments to your register).
