Parents Plus Autumn Programme Training Calendar 2024

From the early years to adulthood, and also supporting complex needs, the Parents Plus suite of evidence-based parenting and mental health programme trainings for professionals will equip you with the skills, practical strategies, and ongoing support, to improve outcomes for the families and children you work with. 

Backed by over 26 years of research, the Parents Plus programmes are important universal, early intervention, and prevention interventions, and have been developed in partnership with services and families, for services and families. Our programmes are tailored to the needs of local communities and can be delivered one-to-one, in groups or online, reaching even the most at-risk or geographically isolated families.

Parents Plus proven programme trainings for professionals stand out for their unique blend of evidence-based approaches, practical tools, and a supportive learning environment. The training programmes provide comprehensive and up-to-date knowledge, equipping professionals with the skills to make a positive impact on children, adolescents, and families.

Evidence shows that supervision and supporting facilitators through the accreditation process are integral to services maintaining improved outcomes for the families they work with, and why our charity provides two free supervision sessions to each professional trained in our programmes. Our collaborative approach also ensures that our team of experts work closely with services to build their capacity to evaluate outcomes, as well as roll out the programmes across agencies and regions.
