Family Learning

Tameside ACE understands that parents, grandparents and carers have a vital role in supporting their children’s learning so we offer free family learning courses in schools and children’s centres across Tameside.

The classes are small, fun and friendly and a fantastic opportunity to make new friends, learn new skills and develop your self-confidence. The six week courses include activities for parents and children to take part in together as well as sessions aimed just at parents.

To find out if Tameside ACE Family Learning courses are running at the school or children centre where your attends, please get in touch with the school or children centre to find out. If not, please ask them to get in touch with Learning Manager, Alan Asher alan.asher@tameside.gov.uk.
