Do you have a talent or a special interest?

Are you prepared to share your expertise with others who may be interested?

Do you want to learn more about something and are prepared to work with others to do so?
It is all about sharing learning experiences. Northampton U3A, like other U3As, is a learning cooperative which draws upon the knowledge, experience and skills of its own members to organise and provide interest groups in accordance with the wishes of the membership. The teachers learn and the learners teach.

See Prospective New Groups where help is specially requested. You don't have to be an expert, only interested and willing to help. Lots of guidance and help is available to assist Group Leaders.

Please contact Marie to offer assistance or to suggest a new group.
