  • Need

    Need

    Mothers, fathers, grandmothers, grandfathers, aunties, uncles and carers are usually the first and the most important teachers of a child. If family members are not educated well, evetually this will negatively affect the next generation. Particularly if English is not their first language, family members experience various problems regarding understanding and supporting their child(ren).

    Solution

    Amity will help family members develop their communication skills by organizing Family Language Courses. This will help boost parents', carers' and young people’s confidence, create an atmosphere of engagement with each other and ultimately provide an opportunity for everyone to explore and understand their full potential of communication and social skills.

  • Aims

    Aim 1

    To encourage intergenerational learning

    Activities

    » English as an additional language (ESOL) classes.
    » English and Mathematics lessons.
    » Seminars for parents.

    We are planning to set exams before the course to measure their previous knowledge on the particular fields. At the end of the term we will repeat the exams to see the progress.


  • Impact

    Impact

    Family Learning will provide a good introduction to learning for adults and will build confidence in supporting children's learning. Benefits for children include improved social skills and relationships with peers and adults. Courses give adults a sample of the range of learning opportunities available.

    In the long term families will have improved their communication and social skills. The older generation will have found new opportunities to approach and understand the younger generation.
