Outreach Practitioner Training
Outreach from children‘s centre's can help families to access services that make a real difference to children's and parents’ lives.
In recognition of the important role of outreach practitioners and to better support families who don’t access services from children’s centre, CWDC is planning to offer outreach training opportunities.
The aim is to enable up to 5,000 practitioners, who deliver outreach and are based in or linked to children’s centre across England, to take up new training opportunities by March 2011.
Parentis have now completed delivery of all timetabled courses.
Practitioners requiring training should contact CWDC by email by clicking here.
The course has been developed specifically for outreach and meets the development needs of children's centre outreach practitioners. It is based on unit 300 of the Work with Parents qualification; practitioners could undertake further units (not funded) and gain a full Level 3 qualification.
Parentis will deliver the course at various locations within the areas shown in the map on the left, and it will be available to all practitioners engaged in children's centre outreach work, including volunteers.
Applications are open now, and the programme will end in March 2011.
Building on Skills
This training provides opportunities for practitioners to build on and develop their skills and capacity.
The skills will help outreach practitioners to better understand the impact of poverty and disadvantage on families and communities.
