Family learning encourages family members to learn together. It gives families the opportunity to find out how to support their children's learning in school so that they are more confident and better able to achieve.
Family learning is for parents, grandparents and carers who can work with other adults to develop their own skills.
A variety of courses are delivered across Dudley in schools, community centres, children centres and libraries. All programmes are free and are designed to offer support to parents with children aged 0 - 16 years.
Some of the programmes encourage children and adults to learn together on purposeful activities which are fun but have clear learning aims. Programmes offered in Dudley include:
Arts and Crafts
Developing your child's language and play
Keeping up with your children in ICT
Family First Aid
Got Kids Get Reading
Supporting your child at key stage 1, 2 and 3
Other programmes aim to raise a child's level of achievement in literacy, language or numeracy as well as giving adults the opportunity to improve their own skills and achieve national accreditation.
