“Ol’ man river, dat ol’ man river,

He must know sumpin’, but don’t say nothin’

He just keeps rollin’,

He keeps on rollin’ along.”

Rubina Bhatti

Rubina was academically able as a youth in Pakistan but life carried her in other directions for many years. She returned to adult learning in her thirties, having moved to the UK and with a young family, when her youngest son developed speech difficulties. She was offered support by her son’s primary school and found the family learning programmes helped her to help all her sons improve their academic performance.

Rubina gradually gained qualifications in Functional Skills English and is now studying English and maths GCSEs alongside ICT courses and volunteering in her youngest son’s school.
