Family Learning courses are fully funded for parents, carers and families, so they are free for Northamptonshire residents aged 19 or over.​

​Some Family Learning courses offer qualifications. 

Find out about other qualifications  in English, Maths, IT, ESOL and work related qualifications on the Essential Skills page.

Family Learning courses are delivered online. We use Google Classroom for our live sessions, which we present on a live video call, using Google Meet.​

​Courses can be from one to twelve weekly sessions. Live sessions are normally 1 to 1.5 hours long, with a scheduled contact hour between sessions.

You will get much more out of your course if you expect to do some homework between sessions.

​You will need internet access and a Gmail address and password for Google Classroom.

If extra resources are needed, we will usually provide them free to you by home delivery.
