First Aid For Families

Location: Delivered online

Family Learning courses are engagement courses, helping families move back into learning.

These courses are funded by the Education and Skills Funding Agency, so we must restrict the number of courses that any individual learner can do. These courses are free, and we would like to be able to offer them to as many people in Kent as possible.

YOU MAY ONLY ENROL ON ONE PARENTING COURSE OR ONE CREATIVE FAMILY LEARNING COURSE.
IN ADDITION, YOU MAY ENROL ON ONE ENGLISH, MATHS OR LANGUAGE COURSE.
THESE GUIDELINES APPLY IN THE ACADEMIC YEAR (1ST AUGUST 2020 TO 31ST JULY 2021).

Priority for places is given to NEW LEARNERS.
Please do not enrol unless you are confident that you will attend, as any no shows could have benefitted another family.
