About our training
Whether teaching remotely or in school, we know that ensuring the best educational outcomes for your pupils will remain your priority.
Looking to the future, parental engagement has more power than ever to make a huge improvement to a child’s educational experience and attainment and yet remains an under-utilised resource.
What if we could tell you that we can help you better the school environment for your staff, students and parents? Did you know that a successful parent engagement plan is the key? A parent-friendly approach improves staff retention and academic achievement, as well as reduces absenteeism. Our training will enable you to unlock the parent voice in your school, leading to all of this and more..
In line with the Blueprint for Parent-Friendly Schools, our online workshops and masterclasses have been developed for senior leaders and teachers, providing practical tools, techniques and actions that schools can embed to cultivate an environment that nurtures parental involvement in all areas of their child’s education.
Parentkind training will bridge the gap between parental expectations and school perceptions. As the trusted voice in education for parents, we will help you and your teachers access and understand the parent perspective, apply it in your school environment and boost your parent participation and school reputation.
