Family Learning Project
Family Learning gives parents and children the opportunity to learn together and develop themselves and their relationships. It encourages parents into schools and increases the capability of some of the most disadvantaged families to support their children’s learning whilst raising their own skill levels and confidence. It increases the capacity of local families to take up further education and training as well as improving the educational attainment and motivation of children.
The courses give children and their parents the opportunity to improve communication, learning together and inspiring one another to achieve, using football as the hook to encourage participation. 125 families have taken part in schools around Chester-Le-Street. Many fathers got involved in the training courses bringing them closer to their children as a result.
Cestria believes that by working with families at Primary School levels along with the 13 – 19 year old we are preparing future tenants with the skills needed to provide sustainable communities.
