To help you support your children’s learning, we have courses that will improve your own skills and those which will show you more about how children are taught in schools.
We can help you improve your own maths and English skills so you can support your children’s learning. Our Skills Plus Centres offer free maths and English courses leading to Functional Skills qualifications. These are on offer from a basic level up to Level 2. Courses can be joined at any time of year and we have centres throughout Kent.
Skills Plus also offers year long intensive GCSEs in maths and English. These courses start in September of each year.

These courses are designed to help parents and carers support their child at school and with homework. We offer a wide range of practical courses which enable parents and carers of children from 0 to 16 to learn about the development of language, literacy and numeracy skills and, at the same time, recognise any areas for development in their own skills. They also provide ideas for activities that can be done at home with children.
