National Family Learning Week (FLW), this year from 7-15 October, is an annual awareness campaign promoting and supporting organisations to run FLW events across the country

‘National Family Learning Week (FLW), this year from 7-15 October, is an annual awareness campaign promoting and supporting organisations to run FLW events across the country. The Campaign for Learning (CfL) started co-ordinating Family Learning Day in 1998 to highlight the importance of Family Learning, which has now grown to nine days of fun for families across the country.

The Day itself works as a ‘hook’ to draw people into learning, who might not otherwise get involved by offering it in a relaxed and familiar atmosphere. Fun, informal learning can be far more successful in engaging people who do not currently participate in formal learning. Mums, dads, grandparents, children and friends participate in locally organised events that reawaken their curiosity to learn. Throughout the country, schools, libraries, museums, sports centres and shopping malls throw open their doors and invite families to discover how to build a robot, create a Roman newspaper, prepare an Indian banquet or animate drawings. The combination of fun and learning are the main ingredients in the Week’s winning formula.’
