About The Course

3 x 1 hour sessions are designed specifically for those new to teaching but will also prove valuable to anyone still in the early stages of their teaching career who wishes to further develop their relationship with parents/carers. We shall cover:

  • The importance of engaging parents with school and their children’s learning
  • Understanding why some parents find it harder to engage with the school and how to overcome the challenges
  • Getting the relationship ‘ right ‘ from the beginning
  • Dealing with ‘difficult ‘ parents
  • Engaging all parents in understanding how, at home, to support their children’s learning
  • Helping parents understand and support their child’s progress
  • Running successful parental consultations
What Teachers Say

Thank you . Was great to identify different ways of interacting and communicating with parents. Great to share ideas with other nqts.

Gave me lots to think about, especially as regards different family situations.

The content was clear and informative. Really useful ideas on how to communicate with parents and break down barriers.
