Family Learning has moved online to help support schools, nurseries, parents and carers during COVID 19.  Check out our new offer of QUICK-SKILL courses to help you through lock-downs, self-isolating, home-learning,  homework and catching up.

Ideal for parents, grandparents and carers of children in nursery up to Year 6, you can find a range of short courses to help you to support your child with key skills and health and wellbeing.

Family Learning QUICK-SKILL courses are delivered on ZOOM, so when you enrol you will receive a link by email to join the course at the scheduled time. Each course has a short introductory session of up to half an hour, when you can meet the tutor and other folks on your course, get comfortable with using ZOOM and find out a bit more. Don't be put off by using ZOOM - contact us for help. Most courses are two or three sessions of one and a half hours.
