Short blog post on a collaborative partnership between Edinburgh Family Learning and the National Museum of Scotland. By involving families with the wide
variety of the museum’s collections we are immersing them in different ways to be heard, to talk about their own family stories and to engage in meaningful
ways with their children. This can be a liberating and enjoyable experience for many families, especially those for whom English is an additional language.
There are many barriers in place for bilingual families in engaging in formal education in Scotland – quite apart from language, parents are unfamiliar with
the education system, the life of the school (rules/homework/uniform etc), cultural norms.
Also includes links to other examples of family learning support disadvantaged families in Scotland eg. Tayside and Fife family learning and video about
importance of family learning
