Family learning

Family learning courses offer free, fun learning opportunities for parents, carers and children to learn together. 

If you are a school, children’s centre or community group involved with parents please get in touch.

What is family learning?

Courses are run at local schools, children’s centres, community centres, libraries and other local venues. If mothers, fathers and carers want to learn with their children as a family, or to further develop their own skills to support their children at school, we will have a course that suits their needs.

What are the benefits?

Family learning builds confidence, skills and interest to go on learning in adults and children and enable families to learn with and from each other. Our courses also promote family relationships, raise the attainment and/or achievement of adults and encourage positive behaviour and attitude changes in children through the promotion of collaborative learning.

Who are the courses for?

Courses are targeted at parents without level 2 qualifications and can improve parents’ English and Maths skills which in turn increases their confidence to help their children learn. In addition participation on family learning courses enables parents to have more contact with the education system and become more active partners with schools and nurseries.
