Training for working with Parents using the Nurturing Programme

All-Through Schools

There are several professional training courses for staff in schools who wish to work with parents individually or in groups. Delivering our parenting programmes helps to build relationships with parents, brings a shared language and strategies for managing difficult behaviours, as well as more opportunities to work together to support the development of self-regulation. It can also support attendance.
