Our programme of workshops is designed to set you up for success when it comes to parental engagement at your school. Supported by parent insight, parental engagement research and live case studies, we currently offer:
Leadership Foundation: A whole school approach to Parental Engagement to Parental Engagement
Using Parentkind’s holistic evidence based framework, this workshop supports you, as a leader, to build your whole school approach strategies to create a robust and inclusive plan to support school improvement in your setting.
Masterclass: Developing a Parent Council
After exploring the benefits of a Parent Council, and with a clear definition of what a Parent Council is, this half day session will support you in designing a tailored plan of action to develop and successfully maintain an effective Parent Council at your school, in order to establish and build great parent partnerships.
Masterclass: Overcoming Barriers to Parental Engagement
This interactive workshop allows you to bring your school’s specific barriers to one of our expert trainers, spending a half day tackling the issues that underpin it. You will come away with a strategy to break down each barrier to enable you to you gain more support from parents and build stronger parent relationships.
Masterclass: Conflict Resolution
Every parent has a different perception and interpretation of school communications – this workshop is designed to break down those barriers of conflict between those hard to reach parents and your school. Looking at conflict soft skills, this course is aimed at supporting your school staff with managing conflict with parents to come away with positive resolutions.

Lisa Littlewood, Edgar Stammers Primary Academy:
With the help of Parentkind’s training courses, we’ve gone from parents not crossing the school threshold, to parents who are now engaging with the school regularly and positively, which is hugely beneficial for the children.
