Meet the Team – Advanced Family Learning Administrator

Meet Chloe Machon, our Advanced Family Learning Administrator (Maternity Cover).

“I oversee the planning, organising and delivery of our Family Learning

programme that is the Adult and Family courses we offer here at North

Halifax Partnership, including various courses such as Baby Massage,

Messy Play, Accredited First Aid courses, Childcare courses and many more.”

The role involves:

  • Planning each quarter with what has been popular or requested by

the families whom we work with.

  • Allocating tenders and liaising with external trainers who provide the

sessions for us if not internally staffed.

  • Booking all the venues for the courses to take place.

Receiving of all bookings and inputting them onto the system, then 2 weeks prior to the courses started allocating to families and informing them of their place.

Creating and collating the Family Learning Packs which some of you will be familiar with, these have all the paperwork for each course including registers, evaluation forms, photo consent and everything else required for each course.

Finally collating and reporting at the end of each quarter to evidence the impact that the Family Learning courses have on those families we reach.

Process of courses:

  • Planning of all the family learning course complete and ready to be shared in the newsletter in the run up to the beginning of each quarter.
  • Bookings are then taken up to 2 weeks prior to start date of the course.
  • Allocation of course takes place 2 weeks prior, and the course is then removed from the family learning booking form.
  • Parent/carers informed if they have been given a place or put on a waiting list.
  • A text reminder is sent to those families 3 days prior to start date, and register sent to Family Learning Leads in centres.
  • The Family Learning Lead then meets the trainer and goes through the pack with them completing all paperwork.
  • Once all sessions complete the FL Lead will input the attendances and return the pack back to KP in the drop.

“So if you have any ideas or feedback from parents /carers about things they would like to have running feel free to give me a call or drop me an email.”
