Interested in part-time study to develop your career? Find out more about your options for the future at our FREE taster day for adults who work or volunteer with children, families or adult learners.

This event will introduce the Lifelong Learning Centre’s Foundation Degrees in Learning and Teaching and Child and Family Studies. These programmes are designed for staff and volunteers who facilitate learning or support children and families in:

  • Schools/Colleges
  • Children’s Centres/Nurseries
  • Community Learning settings
  • Third Sector organisations

Lunch and refreshments will be provided.


Education journeys: why do some learners do better than others?

How do outside circumstances influence what children and adults achieve in our education systems? We will consider the factors that can impact on educational progress. This session will introduce the Foundation Degree in Learning and Teaching and the optional Special Educational Needs and Disability route at the University of Leeds. It will be led by Kay Sidebottom and Jacqui Ambler, who run the programme.

What is Family Support?

Do families need support in the UK today? Who works with families and what services do they provide? You will have the chance to take part in a lively discussion about policy and practice and find out more about opportunities in this field. The session will be led by Nathan Loynes, programme leader for the Foundation Degree in Child and Family Studies.

The sessions were really interesting and engaging – there was lots of information but the staff were very helpful and approachable

I’m really glad I came – I feel I can go and have a good think about my next steps now
