Many families are struggling with home-schooling during lockdown. We want to help so we’ve launched a free package of support for vulnerable families in our communities.
With the help of our local schools, we’re helping families in need with tutor-based support for parents and carers who need help with specific subjects, such as maths or English, so that they can help their children with literacy and numeracy school work. We’re also providing free equipment including laptops and 4G dongles, available for parents and carers for as long as they are being supported by On Course South West.
We’re offering digital skills support to help parents to use online learning platforms, as well as providing advice and guidance on wellbeing and supporting other learning needs that parents and carers might have while home learning continues.
We hope that this combination of practical support with access to new skills will give parents and carers the knowledge and confidence to support their children with learning at a stressful and challenging time.
If you want to find out more about this unique programme of support, please call us on 01752 660713. You can also find out more by looking at our Frequently Asked Questions, here.
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.
