A COURSE for parents and other volunteers who want to help in primary schools is to run in Huddersfield.
The 10-week course by the Workers' Educational Association is free and will be held at the new Birkby Children's Centre, Halifax Old Road, Birkby.
It will run from 9.30am to 3pm on Thursdays, starting on May 4.
Spokesman Julian Harber said: "It has a particular emphasis on literacy and numeracy, but also includes sessions on managing behaviour and special educational needs."
People who enrol will have to undertake an average of two hours a week voluntary work in a primary school while the course is in progress.
Further courses will be held during the summer term in Brighouse, Liversedge and Batley.
