Parent Courses and Workshops

In this section you can find details of Adult Learning Opportunities available both at Dowson and in Tameside. Courses and workshops cover a wide range of topics from helping your child with their maths to parenting support, budgeting or cooking! Most courses and workshops are free.
We are delighted to inform you that we have invested in a new range of Parenting Workshop resources from Care For The Family.

The materials are current, entertaining and extremely practical. They are aimed at all parents regardless of your child’s age, ability or behaviour.

The entire range addresses concerns and difficulties in a realistic and entertaining way in order to empower parents through an understanding that “it’s not just us” who might sometimes find aspects of parenting challenging. The courses understand the pressure that parents feel under to make everything appear perfect and yet in reality this usually is quite impossible!

DID YOU KNOW, in a recent survey only 5% of parents had been on a parenting course, but 77% said they’d considered it?


Further courses/workshops are detailed below and we will send out information before each course with regards to bookings. However, you can register your interest now if you would prefer to guarantee your place.


To discuss the courses further or to book your place –  please contact us in school on 0161 366 0177 or email us at  /

We look forward to welcoming you.
