What is the ACL

Parent Ambassador Programme?

One of the key aspects of the Parent Ambassador programme is looking at ways in which we can improve engagement and the relationships schools have with their parents. One of the aims of the programme is to enhance connections within the school community, raising awareness of support that’s available for parents to develop their own skills, that in turn raising aspirations for the whole family.

We work with a Working Families employment advisor who support parents to access information, advice and guidance, and opportunities that support their employment aspirations and increase their own earning potential to achieve a successful work-life balance.

We also have links with other community organisations that can support families including: Essex Chil Fam Well Ser, Libraries, Active Essex, Essex Outdoors, Family solutions, Community 360 and other local community groups
