Family courses

Courses for parents, carers and their children

Family courses are informative, practical and fun, offering a great opportunity for parents, carers and their children to enjoy quality time together learning new skills or maybe rediscovering old ones.

Courses are run free of charge in priority locations. Where a community does not meet these criteria, we are very happy to make the same offer at a very competitive price.

Family Courses

Wider Family Learning

These fun courses are for parents and children to learn together in an informal and family friendly setting. Courses are tailored to meet the needs of a group and can tie in with topics being covered by children at school. We offer a variety of courses including two-hour tasters and three-week courses. Delivered through live online Zoom classrooms.

Parenting Courses


These courses are for parents, grandparents and carers of children. Some courses help parents tackle everyday family issues and help parents and children enjoy family life. Our Parenting courses are not about being a perfect parent - more about discovering that other people's experiences are the same. Parenting courses are not intended to be interventions and the tutor will not tell parents 'how it is done', rather they are discussion-based with time to share experiences, ideas, concerns and possible solutions.

Family English & Maths

Family English, Maths and Language

Courses are for adults who wish to become more involved in their children's learning and enable them to help children acquire English, Maths and language skills. Parents can improve their own skills in English, Maths and language and improve their ability to help their children. Courses are for adults (mothers, fathers, carers and guardians) who do not hold a current level 2 qualification in Maths and English, Grade 4 (formally Grade C) and above. All courses have an element of parent and child working together except those for adults only.
