We want all our Time Out for Parents courses to be delivered well by our licenced facilitators.

To become a licenced facilitator to run our core range of Time Out for Parents courses, you will need to gain a core facilitator licence by attending Part One and Part Two of our training. In autumn 2021 we are running one combined set of face to face training together.

Part One

Part One is delivered through a combination of individual online learning to be completed prior to live sessions with the trainers.
