Family learning offers huge benefits to you and your child. It is all about learning together and helps you to understand how your child learns. Some family learning focuses on supporting you in your role as a parent or carer, with parenting skills and health and wellbeing.
Family Learning courses
We are currently delivering free Family Learning courses and workshops online for parents and carers in Luton. Our courses are listed on our Family Learning Course page.
Before you enrol, please note the following:
Our family learning courses and workshops are intended for Luton residents only. They are open to any adult over the age of 19 who ideally has some caring responsibility for children. They are also open to anyone between aged 16 and 19 who has responsibility for the care of a child or children.
To take part in a workshop or course you will need access to:
an email account and internet access so we can contact you online
a computer, tablet or smart phone to be able to join in the Zoom sessions and to access online resources.
