  • Need

    Need

    Mums, dads, granddads, grandmas, aunties, uncles and carers, they are the most important teachers of a child. If families are not well educated this will effect the whole generation. Especially if English is not their first language, families have problems with understanding and supporting their child/ren.

    Solution

    Amity can help families develop their skills on Family Language courses which will help you support their child/ren. This will improve parents, carers and young people’s confidence and feelings of engagement within education as well as with each other, ultimately leading to children and parents achieving their full potential.

  • Aims

    To encourage intergenerational learning

    Activities

    » English as an additional language (ESOL) classes.
