Free family learning courses

Family learning courses in schools 

We run free family learning courses in several schools across Camden.  Parents and carers discover what their children are learning at school and get to create and take away fun activities and games that make learning fun, allowing them to support their children at home with maths and English. 

 

 

For more information about which schools are involved, look out for a flyer, ask in your school or email perin.sarosh@camden.gov.uk

Upcoming courses, opportunities and events

EVENT POSTPONED: Camden ACL Health & Wellbeing Event at Pancras Square Library on 19 March, 10am-1pm

It is with regret that Camden ACL has taken the decision to postpone the Health & Wellbeing event at Pancras Square Library on Thursday 19 March due to Coronavirus (COVID-19) concerns. 

As much as we did not want to postpone this amazing and well attended event, we felt that the safety, wellbeing and protection of our Camden residents/service users, staff, partners and local organisations is of absolute importance to us and should come first.

There is currently no new date - and we are not sure if there will be a new date for the near future.  However, please check here for any further updates.

We apologise for any inconvenience that this will cause.

 

Camden Cycle Skills and Try-A-Bike

Camden Council offer free cycle skills training for all adults and children, from complete beginners to advanced.

Free children's cycling courses are held during the school holidays.  Free adult group courses for beginners and improvers are offered on many weekends, some away from traffic and others on quiet roads. 

Free, individual cycle skills sessions to practice safer cycling in road traffic are available for advanced levels of experience.  And anyone can join at the open-access after-school cycling sessions on Mondays and Thursdays after school at Cumberland Market and Richard Cobden School.

Adults who are thinking of buying a bike but are not quite sure yet can borrow a bike for four weeks with Camden's free Try-A-Bike scheme.  Proof of ID and advance deposit required.
