Parents and carers

The Hampshire Ethnic Minority and Traveller Achievement Service (EMTAS ) is part of Children's Services in Hampshire County Council.

Our service provides support to Hampshire schools through bilingual assistance offered to schools, nurseries and playgroups who admit a newly arrived pupil, for whom English is an Additional Language (EAL).

Family Learning

One of our projects supports parents to learn English. This means parents can participate more confidently in their children's education and in their family life.

We can:

  • Encourage parents to take part in their children's education.

  • Provide opportunities for learning basic communication skills in English through mother tongue support.

  • Empower parents to gain confidence and enrol in a college to learn English.

  • Provide information about the UK educational system.

  • Help parents to learn basic IT skills.

  • Encourage and provide information about Early Years Education (eg PEEP programme)

  • Raise the awareness of schools and various agencies regarding the barriers and issues of language, culture, job prospects, racism etc.
