[tab title=”introduction”]

We have produced a series of free videos which aim to provide strategies, approaches and resources to best develop your child’s skills and understanding. The courses are focused for those home educating children in the primary age range and include practical exercises and materials to use at home. Subjects that we cover are English, maths, science and modern foreign languages. 

Written and presented by our team of  experts, each video is about 20-30 minutes long, and most include a downloadable ‘workbook.’ You can watch the videos  as many times as you like which are designed to help enhance your skills and confidence in supporting your child in these key areas. 

For the purpose of monitoring numbers and keeping you informed of any changes, we require a first name and email address to register to access the courses. We are working in partnership with Birmingham City Council who are funding the course provision. The ONLY information shared with BCC is the number of people who registered to access the videos.
