Family Learning Courses


The Adult Learning Service love working with families; wherever they are! Their free Family Learning courses are open to learners in schools and community venues across the county and are a great way for parents, grandparents or carers to find out how to support their children with what they learn at school.


At the moment this just isn't possible, so they are now offering Family Learning Workshops online.


The experienced tutors will work you for an hour online, sharing their ideas on a range of topics. They'll be full of ideas for you to do with your child together at home.
