Here are a number of new courses and workshops that we are offering this term. These are avaliable to all our families in the community.
Please find a copy of the letter sent out to parents at the beginning of term here.

The course is designed to support families improve their diets by developing basic cooking and budgeting skills and trying healthy recipes which the whole family can enjoy. The course is free of charge and starts on Wednesday 11th January at 3.15pm to 4.45pm running for 5 weeks and takes place in the Sports Centre.
Triple P (Positive Parenting Programme)
Ambleside is working in partnership with Home Start, Small Steps Big Changes through the Big Lottery Fund to deliver Triple P (Positive Parenting Programme).
Triple P is designed to give parents the skills they need to raise confident, healthy children and teenagers and to build stronger family relationships. Triple P doesn’t tell people how to parent. It gives parents simple and practical strategies they can adapt to suit their own values, beliefs and needs.
Using these positive parenting skills, it will enable you to feel more confident about managing day-to-day family life. It will have a positive impact on your overall well-being.
This course is distinctive in that it is not a ‘one-size–fits–all’. You can choose to do the workshops that you feel you need support with. The four workshops will be held in the sports centre dance studio from 9am to 11am.

If you are looking for a job or a change in career, you will need to have an up-to-date Curriculum Vitae (CV). If a job advertisement asks for a CV – it’s a hint that the employer expects a good deal of life experiences and accomplishments, including your education history. If you have not completed a CV before, it isn’t always easy to know where to start.
In light of this we have organised a free CV writing workshop on Tuesday 24th January. The workshop will start at 9am and end at 10.45am and will take place in Ambleside’s I.T Suite. The workshop will help you to make a CV with all of the relevant information you need.
