The objectives of the School and Family Liaison programme are to help parents become more involved with their children’s education by providing them with opportunities to keep up to date in subjects such as information technology, maths, English  and Irish.


There are a wide range of courses on offer to ensure that parents are given variety and choice. They are flexible in delivery, content and duration to suit the parents’ needs. They are organised and delivered in consultation with the parents, Home School Community Liaison Co-Coordinators, community workers and the tutors. In addition, themed family learning programmes are delivered, from time to time, as a way of encouraging parents to return to learning.
