Family learning offers widespread benefits. Children’s well-being, attitudes to learning and achievement levels all improve; parents’ and carers’ confidence, skills and prospects increase; family relationships strengthen. Family learning projects are an excellent way for libraries, museums, and other parts of the cultural and heritage sector to attain new audiences and greater take-up of services and activities. For schools and early years settings they offer an ideal method for engaging parents and carers who are hard to reach.
Anne draws on many years’ experience as a family literacy tutor. Her popular family learning and family literacy courses explore the value of family programmes and activities and identify practical strategies for delivering them effectively.
These are her current courses. She is always happy to design new ones.
Anne provides family learning courses for national institutions, local authorities and regional organisations. She also delivers in-house training. Early years practitioners, family support workers, teachers and LSAs, and library, museum and heritage staff have all found her training extremely valuable, as have parents and carers. Anne tailors all her courses to delegates’ needs and client requirements. All her training is interactive and practical. Delegates receive extensive sets of handouts.
