The Campaign for Learning
The learning Tree uses the philosophies of the national campaign, run by Campaign For learning to promote learning in all its forms although the majority of our events themselves are aimed at families, they are also designed to facilitate follow-on learning by the adult family members.
Links with local further education colleges and other learning establishments mean we are able to signpost a wide range of opportunities for those who attend our sessions.
With support from the National Learning Network, we are currently developing a suite of e-learning materials. Through e-learning we are able to embed ICT as well as literacy and numeracy skills into our existing Family Learning programmes. We plan to publish these on the website shortly.
Improving ICT skills using school facilities
As part of the Smartplace program we are currently piloting an innovative approach to using school facilities out of hours to enable parents, and others from the local community, to improve their ICT skills with training such as ECDL from Learndirect.

Family Learning - Simply the best
As parents and carers dealing with the everyday challenges of family life it is all too easy to forget that we are simply the best teachers of our children. For many of us our own experiences of learning have not been good and we often pass on our attitudes to our children. Yet these bad experiences are rooted in four myths about learning.
