Develop Your Skills and Improve Outcomes for Children and Families: Parents Plus Programme Training for Professionals, Autumn Calendar

Look no further than the Parents Plus suite of trainings, offered this coming autumn. From the early years to adult, and also supporting complex needs, each programme will equip you with the evidence based skills, practical strategies, and ongoing support, to improve outcomes for the families and children you work with. 

Backed by over 25 years of research, the Parents Plus programmes are important universal, early intervention, and prevention interventions, and have been developed in partnership with services and families, for services and families. Our programmes are tailored to the needs of local communities and can be delivered one-to-one, in groups or online, reaching even the most at-risk or geographically isolated families.

Parents Plus Programme training stands out for its unique blend of evidence-based approaches, practical tools, and a supportive learning environment. The training programmes provide comprehensive and up-to-date knowledge, equipping professionals with the skills to make a positive impact on children, adolescents, and families.

Evidence shows that supervision and supporting facilitators through the accreditation process are integral to services maintaining improved outcomes for the families they work with, and why our charity provides two free supervision sessions to each professional trained in our programmes. Our collaborative approach also ensures that our team of experts work closely with services to build their capacity to evaluate outcomes, as well as roll out the programmes across agencies and regions. 

With an engaging and enjoyable learning experience, Parents Plus Programme Training is truly a transformative opportunity for professionals seeking to make a genuine difference to the lives of children, adolescents and families.
