Be Brilliant! – this year’s Family Learning Festival theme
The theme for this year’s Family Learning Festival is Be Brilliant! Whatever you plan to do for the Festival, we hope you can use the theme to make families feel differently about the world around them and their own potential. We’ll be expanding our themes page with ideas and resources over the next few weeks, so keep clicking on the Family Learning Festival website to keep up to date.
For all your family learning needs – visit the new National Family Learning Network website!
The new website for the National Family Learning Network has just gone live. The site has the very latest from the world of family learning including news, resources and funding updates. The site’s forum is also a great meeting place for others in the field of family learning. The new website can be found at

Reading activities in the build up to the Festival…
Have you tried the Reading Agency’s Six Book Challenge?  It’s a great way for less confident parents and carers to practise their reading skills and model reading to their children.  If they start the Challenge over the summer (while their children are doing the Summer Reading Challenge through the local library) you could celebrate their success during the Family Learning Festival.  Please contact genevieve.clarke@ to find out more or see
Education Organisations join force to launch
Whole Education
The Campaign for Learning has become part of Whole Education, a partnership that brings together a group of non-political education organisations. Whole Education aims to promote practices that ensure that every young person has access to an education that will equip them with the skills and knowledge to succeed in life and to contribute positively to the creation of a good society. As well as the Campaign, the active partners behind Whole Education so far include the RSA, Paul Hamlyn Foundation and the Young Foundation.
