Meet Parentkind's associate trainers

Through a rigorous process we have recruited a wealth of educational knowledge and expertise to guarantee that you receive a professional and interactive training programme. This will help build the skills your school needs to support successful parental engagement.

Our new trainers range from former headteachers and Ofsted inspectors, to parental engagement champions and education consultants. They all bring their own experiences and qualifications to the workshops, which will help individual school needs.
