Children spend less than 20% of their waking hours at school or pre-school settings, so parents and carers who can support a child’s learning will give them a real advantage.
Not sure where to start? Don’t know enough about how children are taught? Didn’t do well at school yourself? You are exactly who these courses are for! Many people come along to find out how children are taught at school and then decide to do adult qualifications for themselves too – it’s never too late!
If you’re worried about joining a group, please speak to our enrolment team about linking up with a tutor or project working to build your confidence and get you started.
What will I do?
In our relaxed, small group settings, you will share your thoughts, concerns and ideas with our experienced adult tutor and other learners; you’ll make resources and talk about activities to try out at home; you’ll adapt ideas to help your child and gain confidence to speak to school or settings about their progress and find new interests for yourself. Many of our learners have gone on to volunteer and work in schools and early years settings, along with a host of other jobs. Others do it just for fun and to see the friends they’ve made along the way.
