Training and Support

Family Caring Trust's programme kits contain all that is needed to deliver a course of skill-based support to parents, couples and young adults: participant handbooks, facilitators guide including a script for sessions and audio-visual input. However, since both facilitators and group participants benefit when facilitators have access to training and support, we offer two levels of training: an Initial Training (1 day) and an Open College Network Level 3 accredited training course: Parenting Programmes - Leading with Confidence. Both are offered in partnership with experienced and qualified Approved Facilitator Trainers around the UK and Ireland.
