Family Learning Impact Fund 2008 to 2011: summary paper


This report provides a short informal summary of the Family Learning Impact Fund (FLIF) programme. The programme ran over a three year period from 2008 to 2011, with 136 learning providers taking part. It aimed to widen family learning opportunities through increasing take-up and improving progression and achievement.

This summary paper gives examples of partnership working and other innovative approaches developed through FLIF. These should help learning providers to implement community learning reforms. The new community learning objectives require providers to use effective local partnerships to plan and deliver learning. They also reflect the potential for family learning to help some of our most troubled families turn their lives around, and equip parents and carers to support and encourage their children’s learning.
