At the Family Hub we run a wide range of Family Learning Courses in partnership with Newbury College & the West Berkshire Community Learning team (CL). As a result of funding received via CL we are able to offer some courses free & some with a small charge. We also offer free crèche places for children aged 1 – 5 years if required whilst you attend courses.
Due to room capacity we can run up to 2 courses per term and all places must be booked in advance. Family learning courses are a great way to meet others and have fun.
For more information on any of these courses please contact the Family Hub.
