Family Learning is part of Cornwall Council Adult Education Service. They work in schools with parents and carers providing learning opportunities which promote language, literacy and numeracy skills through practical easily-resourced activities.
Potential courses include:
- Nurture Me, Nurture My Family
- Speakeasy - relationships and sex education
- Food 4 Thought
Developing Literacy & Numeracy Skills
- Keeping up with the Children
- Supporting Phonics
- Supporting Reading
- Ready for School
- Transition to Secondary
Family Learning courses are funded through Together for Families, and there is no charge to the school. The school will need to provide the space for the sessions. Family Learning may be able to fund childcare to enable parents to attend. Courses generally run as 6 week blocks but this can be amended to suit the school and parents/carers. Course content can also be targeted to fit your school curriculum and specific needs.
