Free helpful courses for parents/carers & children

Free helpful courses for parents/carers & children

Pitched at families who may benefit from a little extra help with literacy, numeracy or strategy and social skills, the aim is to develop children’s confidence and ability as well as the support parents/carers can give with school work.

In these friendly, relaxed courses, our experienced tutors will be supporting children in tailored sessions, whilst showing parents/carers how to continue this at home.
