Course Code:



The course will give you the chance to learn more about the core tasks and processes of the Family Partnership Model.
Our aim is for the course to offer a safe, reflective opportunity in which you can explore, confirm and develop your own understanding and practice of the helping idea of what is to be expected in more detail.


•Sessions include whole group and small group discussions and activities, small group practical sessions and feedback and planning of between session tasks.

•Discussions will give you the chance to look at the key components of helping within the Family Partnership Model.

•The practical sessions offer the chance to explore and experiment with the skills and processes involved in engaging and working with parents and families through the Family Partnership Model. Wherever possible, during the practical sessions, you will be asked to use actual situations from your own and others’ experience to give all participants as real an experience of helping as possible. The focus of the practical sessions is on the skills used, not the content or resolution of issues.

•We will invite you to complete short tasks between sessions which will include some reading and a variety of other activities including reflecting on the course learning and your experiences, observing and practising the skills covered in the course. All reading material will be supplied during the course.


An attendance certificate will be provided at the end of the course. Since the course builds session by session and is experiential, most will be gained by attending all sessions and completion is considered to be attendance at 3 sessions or above.
