Family Links Nurturing Training for school staff working with parents

Family Links Nurturing Programme helps schools to support parents to manage their children's behaviour and emotions more effectively.

Eighty schools in Bradford already succesfully deliver this programme, but there are gaps!  Train staff in your school to help parents by using an evidenced based programme.

Do you work with parents?

Do you have the capacity to run a 10 week positive parenting group in your school?

There are now 80 primaries trained in Family Links but there is a gap in parenting programme delivery for parents with children aged 5-11 yrs across Bradford.

Thus, we are looking at targeting primary school staff to offer the hugely successful Family Links’ Parent Group Leader Training, which is suitable for those working with parents/carers/families and who have the capacity to offer parenting courses within their setting.

The places are being offered free to your setting and the £800 fees will be paid on your behalf out of Parenting Early Intervention funding. 

In return you must commit to:

  • To attend and complete the 4 days training & 1 day refresher a year later
  • To deliver a minimum of 2 groups per academic year.
  • To work with partner schools to deliver where possible as 2 trained staff are required to be able to deliver the course.
  • To ensure that you can fund resources, refreshments and associated costs of running groups (Approx £200 per group).
  • Completing and returning the  course paperwork, monitoring information and an Outcome Star evaluation
