Work with Parents

Work with Parents

The Work with Parents qualification is awarded by City & Guilds and will equip staff working with parents with the skills and knowledge to provide effective support to parents.  We offer this qualification at three levels.

Level 2:

Level 2 will suit you if you are a parent volunteer in a school or other children’s settings and looking to start a career in the field. You may have some experience – perhaps you’re a parent yourself, or you’ve been through other short  parenting courses and have done some volunteering.

Level 3:

Level 3 is a work-based qualification for staff already delivering frontline work with parents in a school or other children’s settings, who manage a caseload and wish to enhance their skills and knowledge. Practitioners will produce a portfolio of evidence on a broad range of work-based topics including:

  • The partnership model of helping
  • Reflective practice
  • Effective communication
  • Working with groups of parents to improve parent-child relationships and engage parents in children’s development and learning

Level 4:

Level 4 focuses on the skills and knowledge required to provide sustained, intensive, whole family support in a multi-agency setting and is ideal if you are a practitioner delivering this type of support for families with multiple and complex needs.  Practitioners will produce a portfolio of evidence on a broad range of work-based topics including:

  • Building and maintaining positive relationships
  • Use of proactive preventative intervention methods
  • Multi­-agency collective agreement on changes expected from families
  • Approaches used to reduce anti­social behaviour and increase positive behaviour
