What's on offer?

Family Learning

Family learning is designed for adults and children of all ages and abilities. There are a range of workshops and courses available, from two hour workshops to courses lasting 12 weeks or more. They are currently being offered in schools, children's centres, libraries and community centres within the borough.     

If you are a school, children's centre or community group and would like to offer learning opportunities to adults or families, please get in touch to discuss what can be arranged in your area.

There are two main types of family learning:

  • wider family learning for families
  • Family English, maths and language for families 

Wider family learning for families

Offers a range of informal courses where all family members are invited to participate and learn new skills together. Other family members are also welcome including grandparents, aunts, uncles, step families and foster families. Activities include: arts and crafts, music, cook and eat, computers, Spanish, man and boy climbing adventure weekends, sharing stories, making skeletons, creative writing and science workshops.

Offers courses where parents/carers are given the opportunity to find out about their child's learning and development in English or maths (including ICT) as well as boosting their own skills.
