Tales of Dudley Castle is the theme for this year’s Family Learning Festival.
We are running workshops at various libraries in the borough during the half term holiday - 29 October to 2 November.
The theme will be explored through a range of creative, fun workshops for children with their parents or carers and will include local history, visual arts, creative literacy and storytelling.
Core activities will include:
• discovering and discussing local fables, notable characters and historic events;
• writing and sharing creative poems and short stories together;
• designing and creating 2D visual art images (photomontage, collage, painting and mixed-media);
• constructing 3D Dudley Castle sculptures;
• identifying new ways to support children’s learning at home.

Families and friends of the children who have taken part in the workshops will be invited to a celebration exhibition event where they will have the opportunity to see their work displayed, visit the museum and complete a craft activity.

Sub-contracting can be an effective way of enhancing the capacity and diversity of our provision. However during the academic period 2015/2016 we did not utilise sub-contracts to deliver provision within the Dudley borough.
In line with the funding rules of the Skills Funding Agency we are required to publish the actual level of funding paid and retained for each of our sub-contractors in 2016/17. The following table shows this information for delivery of Community Learning provision within the Dudley Borough.
