Family Learning

Have fun learning to support your family.

Discover new skills learning together as a family with our FREE Family Learning activities run by our experienced tutors in schools, children’s centres and community venues.

Confused by your children’s homework? Need to know about their behaviour or development? Want to refresh your First Aid knowledge, or have some ideas for craft activities during rainy days and holidays? Family Learning encourages you to support your children’s learning and development in an exciting and friendly way and is open to all parents, carers and grandparents.

What can I learn?
First Aid. A new language. English and Maths skills. Crafting skills. Family meal and money saving ideas. Kitchen Chemistry, British Sign Language, mindfulness and much more…

Due to current COVID-19 government guidelines, Family Learning will take place virtually using Google Classroom. You will work with your tutor and other students in a virtual classroom, meeting every week at a regular time. We will supply you with a login and password when you enrol, and can provide telephone support to help you get into the virtual classroom on your computer/tablet.
There may be an expectation for learners to collect/purchase resources prior to the session in order for you to take part, this will be communicated the week before the course is due to start and every effort has been taken to ensure the cost will be minimal.

Sounds good – how do I join?

This list will be updated regularly.

To make sure you secure a place on your chosen course, please complete your enrolment no later than a week before the course start date. That way we can ensure you have all the resources and Google Classroom account details in plenty of time so you are ready to start learning.

I managed to pass my GCSE, probably one of the oldest learners at age 64. Now I’m looking to get back into learning and hopefully take an A level in maths.”


Studying English Functional Skills, I now have an improved confidence and I can walk around with my head held high.


Helped me find the real me. I now have the confidence and the qualification to find myself a job. Thank you to my tutors who believed in me and pushed me to my limits it sure has paid off.


I have now passed both my functional skills courses and am currently studying for GCSE’s. I must admit it’s much better and I am way more confident.”


Everybody’s really welcoming, and nobody judges you, and you can be who you want to be. It’s just a great way to get going.


Just started the Introduction to Counselling Course & it is excellent!


Really enjoyed the Introduction to Training course. The trainer’s style was creative and engaging. Would recommend to anyone.


I recently attended two of the free workshops and I was amazed how much I learnt, the tutors were very passionate about the craft they were teaching and the fact we all got to bring items home that we made was so wonderful. I would recommend to anybody.


I’ve just received my results and have passed both my GCSE English & Maths. I left school in 1988. Getting the chance to redo them was a great opportunity for me. Such a good feeling to have passed, onwards and upwards for me.
