CALAT Family Learning offers a diverse and rich programme of Family Literacy, Language and Numeracy courses and workshops, sometimes referred to as Skills for Families.

Adults are able to improve their own skills, whilst learning how to support their own child’s learning.

Many programmes offer the chance to work towards a nationally recognised qualification. The programmes are of a high quality and are run in partnership
with schools, libraries, children’s centres, family & community centres. These programmes are largely funded through Learning Skills Council funding and are
free for eligible parents and their families.

Skills for Life is the key Government strategy to improve the literacy, language and numeracy skills of adults and CALAT Family Learning has a key role to play in both work with parents/ carers through skills for life and in supporting the Early Years Foundation Stage, Every Child Matters, Healthy Schools strategy, the Primary Strategy and Social Inclusion strategies.

CALAT Family Learning also offers a successful programme of short family courses (ranging from one-off workshops to a few weeks), where mums, dads, grandparents and carers can enjoy learning together with their child. Such as:

• Storytelling
• Small steps into health
• Small steps into work
• Once upon a rhyme
• Mind body fitness
• Making maths games

We also run a range of special family workshops.
