Parent and Carer

Horizons is an 18 hour course delivered over 6 sessions.  The aim of the programme is to engage parents/carers and;


  • support them in developing a better understanding of their children’s behaviour at home and at school

  • raise the confidence and self-esteem of the parents/carers 

  • support them in helping their children to make informed choices when leaving school

  • support the parents’/carers’ own aspirations by helping them to consider further steps to develop their own skills and chances of improving opportunities in sustaining employment

Families on the programme attended a weekend at Northern College where they engaged in a photography course and a Family Fun Day at Skelton Grange (photos to be taken on 24th July).

“I found the Horizons course enjoyable and interesting.  It helped me improve on my confidence, self-esteem and knowledge and further advice on how to get on in work and life.”  Nicola 29

“It has given me more experience and confidence and meeting new people.  Jenny the tutor was brilliant, really helpful and friendly.”
