About the World Education Centre

The World Education Centre (WEC) is a Development Education Centre based at Bangor University. We offer an advice, consultancy and team-teaching service to primary and secondary teachers and teacher trainees. We also work in Higher and Further Education to promote the global dimension and sustainable development. Our large range of resources is available for loan from our Resource Centre in the University's Normal Site Library.

The staff are funded by grants from Christian Aid, Oxfam, DFID Development Awareness Fund and the Enabling Effective Support Initiative. WEC is a member of the Development Education Association and Cyfanfyd; the Development Education Association for Wales.
