'For some families, issues with numeracy, literacy or other basic skills can act as barriers to parents supporting their children's learning ... Family Learning programmes have been shown to deliver lasting improvements in literacy, numeracy and language skills in both children and their parents. They also boost parents' involvement in their children's learning, encourage parents to go on to further training and can re-connect them with schools they might previously have been wary of.' (Every Child Matters, 2007, DfES).
In practice, Family Learning gives parents/carers the chance to learn new skills and how to help their child learn in a fun and friendly way. Self-confidence and skills achieved through Family Learning programmes help parents to progress into other learning opportunities. Family Learning also expands the horizons of its learners encouraging them to think about career possibilities.
