Training

We offer high quality training to support schools and settings in developing their work with parents and the community at an affordable price.

Our training is highly participative and practical. It includes sharing current practice, input about developments, tools to help reflect on our work, practical case studies, videos, evidence based strategies and discussion. Where possible, training includes gap tasks. It is aimed at school staff including senior leadership, teaching staff, family workers and parent governors.

We also run staff INSET sessions on a range of topics from class meetings to running the Playclub Project. Please contact us if you are interested.
