Family Learning

All parents want their children to do well at school and to succeed. However, many simply don't know where to start. Everything seems to have changed since your own schooldays, and you don't want to confuse your children by using different methods to their teacher. Family Learning can help.

What is family learning?

Family Learning is about providing courses that generate ideas and activities parents and carers can share, enjoy and learn with their children - improving your own skills at the same time. They can give parents and carers the opportunity to find out how things are taught in their own child's school, as well as a chance to share ideas with other parents and develop their own skills.
