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. Priority for places is given to new learners.

It is designed to: Help learners recognise the difference between passive, aggressive and assertive behaviours and learn how to become more assertive as well as build their children’s confidence.

Parenting courses are not interventions and the tutor will not tell parents “how it’s done”, rather they are discussion-based with time to share experiences, ideas, concerns and possible solutions.

Tutors will facilitate and encourage discussion in a secure environment, the expectations and concerns of the learners will be used to inform the planning and content of the course to meet learners' needs.

• Ideas for becoming more assertive and building self-confidence
• How to say NO when necessary.
• How to accept praise and respond to compliments.
