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.

Prices on application.

Level 3:

This course is designed to equip learners with the essential knowledge and skills to enable them to work with parents effectively in a children’s setting, including Caseload Management. Click here for more details or contact for a booking form.

This is a blended format which involves 1.5 days classroom days, online learning and 120 notional learning hours for the whole qualification including assessment stage. Learners must produce a portfolio of evidence from their role working with families towards improved outcomes for their children. The qualification should take between 3 to 6 months to complete.

Members: £880 inclusive of training and assessment (sign up for FREE membership here)

Non-members: £1080 inclusive of training and assessment

Individuals have the option to pay in staged payments.

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

The qualification is aimed at practitioners who deliver intensive support for families with multiple and complex needs. Click here for more details or contact for a booking form.
