Time Out for Parents Facilitator Training

Post image

Our high-quality training will equip you to deliver our popular and accessible Time Out for Parents courses.

Being a parent can be both rewarding and challenging, and all parents at times will benefit from others coming alongside them as they bring up their children. Through our Time Out for Parents courses, we want every parent in the UK to have access to high-quality parenting courses that will equip, encourage and support them through the various stages of parenthood. We are passionate about helping mums and dads not only survive, but to thrive as parents.

Our Time Out for Parents Facilitator Training will enable you to both support parents and help them build strong and secure relationships with their children.

“I always believed that parenting doesn’t come with an instruction manual – until I found the Time Out for Parents resources.” – Licenced Facilitator

To run our core range of parenting courses you will need to gain a core Facilitator Licence by completing our Time Out for Parents Facilitator Training which is split into two parts. Part One looks at and develops the skills to facilitate a course with a group of parents. Part Two looks in depth at the underpinning theory behind our parenting courses.

On successfully completing these training sessions, we will license you to deliver all of our core Time Out for Parents courses.

You can find more information about all of our Time Out for Parents courses here.

The training

We have recently launched our online Time Out for Parents Facilitator Training which includes a combination of online learning and live group sessions with the trainers. We are looking forward to our popular face-to-face training returning in 2022. See below for more information:
