Parents and carers for whom English is an additional language
The Hampshire Ethnic Minority and Traveller Achievement Service (EMTAS) is part of Children's Services in Hampshire County Council.
We work with Hampshire children, families, schools and parents and carers on all aspects of provision in relation to English as an Additional Language (EAL).
Hampshire Futures funds the delivery of Family Learning classes to parents. These classes help parents learn basic English so they can get more involved in their children's education.
The family learning classes can:
encourage parents to take an active part in their children's education
support parents to develop better home-school links
provide opportunities for learning basic communication skills in English through first language support
empower parents to gain confidence and enrol at college to improve their English
provide information about the UK education system
help parents to learn basic IT skills
