The Impact of Family Learning Interventions on schools and communities

This research, published in December 2010, was commissioned by Brighton and Hove Family Learning and details qualitative research into the impact of Family Learning on adults and for the production of good practice case studies that built upon the ongoing tracking work for the Family Learning Impact Funding (FLIF) programme, managed nationally through NIACE.

The purpose of the research was to consider the contribution of Family Learning programmes to:
• Continued involvement by participants in their children’s learning;
• Production of softer outcomes for participants, in particular the building of increased confidence;
• Participation in wider learning and training opportunities;
• Participation in volunteering;
• The building of greater community cohesion through the development of stronger social and cultural capital.
This research project also considered the above elements in the context of two case studies to demonstrate good practice in developing Family Learning/ School collaboration
