Training to Run the Real Parenting Course

The aim of the Real Parenting course is to provide an online platform to enable churches to provide free access to children’s mental health and parenting training.

 

The training will equip each church to have a designated ‘Fegans Family Support Ambassador’ to support parents and young people in their local community.

 

Train the trainer videos

Once approved by Fegans, as a Family Support Ambassador you will have access to free training to help you:

  • build your own parenting knowledge
  • develop group facilitation skills
  • understand parenting needs

 

Training in Role Play

In our experience of running parenting workshops we have found that encouraging parents to take part in role play is a vital part of understanding and practising the skills being taught to them in the course. We have therefore included “role play” videos in the Train the Trainer section of the website to demonstrate role play to you so that you can encourage your parents to role play in your workshops. 

 

Ambassador Handbook

The Real Parenting Course consists of four sessions lasting an hour and a half each.

The Ambassador Handbook provides a detailed, structured timetable for each session so you can be confident in knowing

  • how to prepare for each session
  • what the objective of each session is
  • exactly what to do, and when, in each session

Animated Videos for Parents

Recent research by Microsoft has shown that attention spans are getting shorter and we have experienced this in our workshops.

We have therefore broken up each week into short subsections of animations which teach parenting principles in a way that is easy to digest and approachable. The animations are then followed with a combination of discussions and role play.

Downloadable Parenting Workbook

 

We have found that over a four week course stressed and busy parents can often lose or forget workbooks. 

So we have provided a downloadable workbook in PDF format which the Real Parenting Ambassador can print off and insert into cheap binders so that extras are available every week.

Online support for Ambassadors

 

Through our private online forum Real Parenting Ambassadors will be able to get ongoing support and advice in working hours from experience Fegans Family Support Workers.  

Free Downloadable Marketing assets

 

It can be a challenge promoting your course within your local community so we have put together downloadable posters and flyers. 

All you need to do is put the details of your course in the space available and then you can (with permission!) promote it in places where parents are likely to see them – we suggest local schools, GP surgery waiting rooms and the like.
