Mother becomes a Family Learning champion

Mother becomes a Family Learning champion

Jan 8, 2015

Beverly Orr first approached Family Learning at Wardley Children’s Centre in 2009. Bev wanted to get involved with learning based around her child.

Her son, Tyler, was then 1 year old (using the Family Learning crèche) and Bev attended Family Learning courses throughout the next 2-3 years. She was able to gain skills and abilities to help her son with early number and language development in preparation for nursery school.

Bev also achieved qualifications in Level 1&2 English and Maths during her time with Family Learning. She then went on to complete and achieve a qualification in ICT (ECDL) in 2012.

Impact of learning on learners and their children

Bev has gained personal confidence throughout her learning journey. When her son went to nursery in 2012, she was proud to receive positive comments from his teacher who said that Tyler was very advanced in his development, especially with his  reading, writing and number skills. Bev attributes this to what she had learnt with Family Learning.

“Bev is the perfect Family Learning Champion. She is a shining example of how you can help and support your children.”

This year, Bev has become a Family Learning Champion. She encourages parents to get involved with Family Learning by talking to them about the benefits to themselves and their children. Her son Tyler is now attending Lingey House Primary School  and Bev is taking part in the Family Maths and Family English courses in the school. She is a wonderful role model and example of how you can help and support your children.

Bev commented; “Being part of Family Learning has given me a focus and the confidence to go on and learn something new. I am looking forward to my role as Family Learning Champion,”

“Bev is a valued learner and a true ambassador for Family Learning”

Family Learning Manager Karen Milne voiced the thoughts of the team when she commented upon Bev’s achievement and support. Karen said; “Bev has continued to develop her personal and professional skills. She is a valued learner. We are delighted that Bev has joined us as a Family Learning Champion. She is a true ambassador for Family Learning.”
