Family Learning

At Blackburn with Darwen Adult Learning we have a team of dedicated, expert Family Learning tutors who deliver a range of courses (from 2 to 30 hours) in schools, family centres and community settings.

By finding out how children are learning and developing in nursery or school, Family Learning enables parents and carers to support this learning at home. Evidence shows that when parents or carers are involved in their children's education, children achieve more. We use exciting resources and activities which make learning FUN!

We also provide a route back into education for those adults who want to improve their skills.


Our Family learning courses will enable you to:

  • Support children's learning at home.

  • Understand how children are taught in school.

  • Find out about other services in your area.

  • Improve and refresh your own skills, e.g. in English and maths.

For those wishing to progress further, we also offer qualifications and routes to further/higher education, volunteering and employment.

Our focus is on improving English, maths, digital skills and health & wellbeing for families across the community, concentrating on areas of highest need. 


Any local school or centre looking to provide Family Learning for the families they work with should contact the Family Learning team to discuss their requirements.


Our programmes are flexible, friendly and fun. We will work with you to plan and deliver a Family Learning package that suits your needs.

This course has already benefited me when I help my children with their school work. My understanding of how topics are taught has improved immensely.
