Become a Course Leader

There's lots of great reasons to put your hand up to lead a course - it's fun, you can share your unique knowledge with like-minded people and... you'll get to attend the annual U3A Course Leaders' party, held to thank our course leaders for the amazing job they do. Here's some pics from our party in December 23 last year - great food and a chance to meet each other and to welcome new course leaders such as Belinda Jermyn (Cribbage). Also, to farewell the lovely Sue O'Loughlin as our retiring Program Team Leader - thanks again Sue. Running a course not for you? Maybe you have an idea for one, be it long, short or a one-off event. Our new program team leader Jane Thomson, would love to hear your thoughts on what you'd like to see in our 2024 program. If you know someone you think might be a great pre- senter on an interesting topic, Jane would be happy to hear from you at
