What will I study?

These courses are designed to help the whole family. Parents and carers will learn about key literacy and numeracy skills and methods in order to be able to better support children with their own development. Many of our students follow on from these courses into further learning opportunities and gain related qualifications, such as Functional Skills and GCSEs and even teaching assistant qualifications. 

Help Your Child with English and maths (20 hours/10 weeks)?- This is designed to help parents who have children in Foundation Stage and Key Stage 1. Tutors will focus on both literacy or numeracy and spend time making resources and guiding parents to support their children through exploring rhythm and rhyme, sharing books and games and creating their own learning resources. 

Keeping Up with the Children (20 hours/10 weeks)?- This programme is split into two separate 5 or 6 week parts (English and Maths) and is designed to help parents of children in Key Stage 2. The course explains some of the key skills which children need to develop and allows parents to explore ways in which they can support children in reading, writing and maths. Parents also have the opportunity to develop their own skills in topics such as sentence construction, punctuation and fractions to improve confidence and knowledge.? 

Grammar for Parents (10 hours/5 weeks)????? A five week course aimed at explaining and helping parents to understand the grammar their child is learning in English lessons. Each session lasts for 2 hours and is aimed at parents of children from Yr1 to Yr6. 

These are adult-only programmes. The college can supply childcare workers to run a free creche for pre-school children, providing a suitable room is available.
