Working with Parents

This course is designed to provide you with a broad knowledge and understanding in areas relevant to working directly with parents and carers.

This course may be suitable for you if you work in the following areas: family support, education, community outreach work, and voluntary group staff, such as; clubs and family-focused networking groups or charities.

During the programme you will learn skills designed to build professional relationships with families, and you will explore the processes for working within multi-disciplinary environments. You will examine and follow statutory guidance covering a range of situations and family circumstances, learning how important it is to create positive partnerships with parents, and how empowering this can be for families.

The course focuses on work-based Learning, together with an element of practical assessment. You will be required to undertake a work placement to develop essential practical skills by working in a suitable provision for one day per week throughout the qualification.

You will relate your studies directly to a place of work (paid or voluntary) through inspecting their policies and procedures, and reflecting on your own practice of working with parents.

Our teaching team have a wealth of experience and maintain strong links with the industry. You will benefit from a range of experiences through your tutor, who will share their own industry experiences and provide you with a valuable insight into working practice.

After you complete your studies you may wish to consider progressing onto further or higher education where we can offer a suite of Level 4, or Level 5 programmes suitable for your own continued professional development in your specific area of expertise.
