Our heart is with the welfare and learning of children and their families. We encourage families to learn together while building family relationships and bonds. We work with parents and carers of all abilities to engage them in learning. The team aims to build confidence, skills and knowledge so parents can help their children with homework and understand school topics. Our courses are the first steps to gaining qualifications and getting a job. The majority of courses are free and are based in central Gateshead, schools and community venues.
