If you are a parent or carer of pre-school or school-age children, Family Learning is for you!
Sutton College’s Family Learning Programme is delivered by experienced tutors, in schools, children’s centres, libraries and parent support groups, as well as in our main centres.
Our free and low-cost courses and workshops offer families the opportunity to gain new skills and knowledge, support their children’s learning, meet other families and enjoy their time together. Parents and carers are also offered progression information and, by request, confidential advice and guidance to plan their future learning and work.

Sutton College would like to offer you the opportunity to apply for one (or more!) of our exciting low cost courses and workshops.
Our target group is London Borough of Sutton residents and our aim is to encourage and develop enjoyable learning, achievement and progression for adults in Sutton. In particular, those who are most in need and/or have had the least opportunity to take part in learning activities and access a wide range of learning opportunities which will enhance their life in many different ways.

COMMUNITY LEARNING PROJECT funding opportunity (open for submissions from 16th May to 13th June 2023)
We are seeking to support projects and ways of working that can provide people with their ‘first step’ into learning, increased confidence and motivation and an ability to access further learning opportunities. It is widely recognised that the community and voluntary sector can provide some of the most innovative ways of providing learning opportunities to groups that have traditionally been hard to engage and we are hoping to partner with this sector to put on some exciting new learning programmes.
Sutton College may be able to help by offering community groups the opportunity to bid for funding to help run activities that meet the Greater London Authority and the Education and Skills Funding Agency targets including: first steps engagement, employability, social cohesion, mental and physical wellbeing and digital inclusion.
We are especially interested in supporting projects concerned with helping our community back into employment after the Covid-19 epidemic.
If you have a project you would like us to consider, please complete the Expression of Interest form in the first instance. You will then be invited to an online meeting where more information will be given.
