Groups and Courses

TERM DATES
11 January - 19 March 2021, 26 April - 2 July 2021, 4 October - 10 December 2021

Due to the restrictions imposed by the Corona virus outbreak, many of our activities have been cancelled or delayed. However, tutors and convenors are finding new ways to continue to run things but in a way that does not involved physical meetings. We are using Zoom, a video conferencing system, to great effect.

There are always more people wanting to join a course than leave one. If you have a hobby, a skill or work based knowledge you wish to share with a group of interested people please contact Course Provision Coordinator who will be pleased to hear from you. More information about running new courses may be found on the About us Page. We can provide you with all the help you require to start a group and ccurrently can provide you with the use of a Zoom license. We are particularly looking for new courses for the Summer 2021.

What Activities are Offered?

Our groups and activities are available to members. If you are not a member click on the Join tab to find out more.

Programme and Timetable

A hard copy of the programme may be selected, downloaded and printed by selecting Spring 2021 Programme. Please note that this version of the programme was prepared in November 2020 and any updates such as the addition of new courses will not be included in this dcoument. They are however included on this web site. Due to the size of the file, the programmme may take a few seconds to download.

Please note that two courses, Badminton and Practical Photography, have been added for the Spring Term since the Prgramme Booklet was prepared.

Full details of the Timetable are available on the Timetable page

Guidance for Conveners/Group Leaders

The U3A Trust has published guidance for Conveners and Course Leaders which outlines some of the considerations related to the establishment and running of groups. This may be accessed at Conveners Handbook. If required, further guidance on new courses can be obtained from the Course Provision Coordinator, on existing courses from the Groups Coordinator and on video conferencing from the Video Conferencing Coordinator.

The U3A Trust also runs online training sessions on using Zoom for Conveners/Group Leaders. Details and booking arrangements may be found at Introduction to Zoom and Hosting Zoom meetings.

Copyright Advice

The U3A is concerned to ensure that copyright is not being infringed when presentations and other material are being used. The U3A's advice on this may be found at Copyright advice for U3A.
