Online facilitator training

Our high-quality Time Out for Parents Facilitator Training will soon be available online.

Our practical and interactive, high-quality training is designed to equip you with the skills, knowledge and confidence to work effectively in groups with parents.

In response to COVID-19, while our face-to-face facilitator training is unavailable, Care for the Family has developed a new online facilitator training. The training is a combination of online individual learning, as well as live group sessions with the trainers.

To run our core range of parenting courses you will need to gain a core Facilitator Licence by first completing the online individual learning, and then attending three days of live online training with our trainers. The training will be split into two parts. In order to attend the live sessions, you will first need to have completed the online individual learning.

Care for the Family’s primary purpose is to strengthen family life in the UK and the Isle of Man. Whilst this event is available online, unfortunately, on this occasion, we are unable to take bookings from anyone who is residing outside the UK and the Isle of Man. For more details please click here
