This online course is for Mothers, fathers and carers with children aged 4 to 11 years.
Family Learning courses are engagement courses, helping families move back into learning. All the courses are FREE. Learners can attend up to two Wider Family Learning (WFL) and Parenting courses from August 1st 2020, and can then progress onto a Family English, Maths and Language course.

It is designed to:
Familiarise adults with a range of new calculation methods and mental maths strategies currently used to teach maths in primary schools.
