Family learning and essential skills
Improve your maths, English or help your children with their learning.
Family learning groups are delivered in over 30 schools in Swansea to support the literacy, numeracy and digital literacy skills of parents and children.
The courses run for 10 weeks and are targeted at year groups negotiated with individual schools. The courses cover literacy, numeracy and digital literacy topics developing ideas to support and develop children's skills in these areas.
The groups are fun and relaxed and build on parents strategies and knowledge in supporting their children's learning. The courses provide an ideal opportunity for parents to improve their own skills, recognise how they can best support their children's learning and meet other parents and carers.
Family learning courses are accredited and are an ideal opportunity for parents to be involved in the school life of their children.
