What Is Family Learning

Family learning helps parents and carers improve their self-confidence and parenting skills, including their ability to help their children learn. For many, this is a first step towards further learning, voluntary work and/or paid employment. It benefits children because parents are more involved in children's school lives and learn how to support their children more effectively.

SS&L offer the following:

  • Wider Family Learning (WFL) short courses and activities that attract parents and carers to work with their children in fun and engaging ways
  • Longer Family English, Maths and Language (FEML) courses. The FEML courses are designed for adults to improved literacy, numeracy and language skills
