Parent Support

Now that your children have settled into school, you may be looking at going back into work after years of being away. You may need support in helping your child with their education or you may be looking for a new challenge. There are lots of courses out there, many of them free, to support you in whatever you want to achieve. We’re not associated with any of the below but we’re simply raising awareness.

Learn Direct

Learn Direct have a centre based in Reading. They offer English and Maths courses, which are backed by Government and completely free. Many places offer this, such as Wokingham and Bracknell College, but this is just one example. You can set your own hours and do as much or as little as you want each week. The more you do though the quicker you complete your course.

They have a number of other courses and apprenticeships to go on such as IT, getting back to work and childcare. These come at a cost but they may be free depending on your income and circumstances.

Check out their website at or phone on 0118 9586600. There are also leaflets available at Reception.

Children’s Centres

If your child is under 5, Wokingham Borough Council offers a lot of support through their centres throughout Wokingham and the surrounding areas: This can be anything from play groups and support for your child or help and support for you as a parent.
