Family Learning

Family Learning is a shared commitment between the Local Council, schools, colleges, health & voluntary organisations, to support families at all the different stages of lifelong learning. The Family Learning team is part of the Local Council. We are a team of LEA officers, teachers and adult tutors, who work with schools, Sure Start teams and other statutory and non- statutory organisations, parents and children, to make learning in families fun.

What is Family Learning?

Family Learning is used as the overarching ‘umbrella’ term as that which involves family members learning together or that supports learning within the family.

Family Learning creates 2 sets of Lifelong learners- parents and children

How do families benefit?

The programmes are responsive to community needs and gives:

  • Time for families to take part in a  planned programme with a clear outline of what they will be doing
  • Time for parents/carers  to  focus on their own needs amongst a friendly group of parents
  • Time for parents/carers  find out about  fun and practical ways to help their children learn and develop and time to try out some of the new ideas
  • The chance for adults to gain a certificate of achievement and often a qualification
  • The chance for adults to move on to other learning opportunities

If you would like to find more out about the family learning that takes place, please see Mrs Angela Clayton.
