Parentkind can help your school build effective home-school partnerships. We know, with school budgets stretched, it is harder than ever to justify specialist staff to work directly with parents. With our training, we can provide your senior leaders, governors, trustees, teachers and admin staff with those skills needed to build successful parental engagement to improve children’s outcomes.
We run a range of half and full day workshops throughout England, Wales and Scotland, designed for staff with either strategic or day to day responsibility for parental engagement. Sessions are interactive and help schools build on their existing work to engage parents.
All participants leave our courses with a tailored action plan on how to implement changes that leave parents feeling valued and supported while transforming your school culture. We also provide bespoke sessions, and one on one support depending on your needs.
Parentkind’s training programme is now CPD (Continuing Professional Development) accredited!
This means that our workshops will now count towards your career development; so if you are a head teacher, senior leader, teacher, governor, pastoral support or family liaison officer (or any other person working with parents), then we can provide you with new and useful skills to help support your professional growth.
Our new trainers range from former head teachers 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.
The network of associate trainers are from all over England, which means they understand the challenges faced by schools in different regions, and can address the ways in which your school can engage with parents.
