Family Learning

Working with schools and children’s centres across Surrey

Family Learning works with schools and children’s centres across Surrey to deliver positive learning experiences for both parents and their children.

Every one of our courses is fully funded, free for families, and built upon the same core principal: that when parents are learning, there is undisputed positive impact on the child.

Family Learning logoCourses are tailored to your needs as a school or children’s centre, with each one offering key benefits including:

  • Embedded employability skills
  • Raised confidence and self-esteem
  • Changed behaviours
  • Preparation for future qualifications

If you're a school or children's centre and want to find out more, please email or phone Cheryl Brown on 01932 794539.

The benefits of Family Learning

"Family Learning can close the attainment gap and help end the 'life-chance lottery' by creating a culture of aspiration in every family... Family Learning provides a low-pressure, safe and enjoyable step back into formal adult learning – one that appeals to parents’ strong desire to support their children." – The National Voice for Lifelong Learning
