Family Learning for Parents and Carers

Our Family Learning team delivers free numeracy and literacy courses and 2-hr workshops in Carmarthenshire’s primary schools for parents and carers to support your child’s learning. Our courses are activity based and will provide you with the tools and knowledge to help you to support your child with their learning at home and at school whilst developing your own skills.

Our ‘Keeping up with the Children’ maths course is a 5-week (approximately 3 hours each week) informal course to help parents to support their child with Maths. This course is free and is accredited with an Agored Cymru unit.
