Who’ll benefit from our training

Parents working together with schools
Teachers

Teachers will benefit from refreshing their communication skills to handle growing parental engagement. NQTs and less experienced staff will benefit from techniques designed to build trust.

Senior leaders

Now is a good time to refresh the SLT’s views on modern communication, to grasp the latest data on parental behaviour, the right technology and review current attitudes around best practice.

Communications specialists

During a time of almost daily changes to regulations and guidelines, specialists will benefit from insight, evidence and data to support their desire for an improvement across the board.

Frequently asked questions.

Do you offer free training courses?

Yes although we are focused on developing a paid proposition for the moment, as we do not have time to do that full time.

Will I receive a certificate of completion?

Yes, our long (half day and full day) courses include a verifiable Just Add Parents certificate.

What if your training is not right for me?

It is always possible that our blend of theory and practice is not suitable for everyone. If you find the coursework is pitched at the wrong level, please tell us and we will seek to find an answer.

If I can’t make the dates you suggest, what can we do?

We make every endeavour to be flexible in our provision of communication training and we are always happy to run additional workshops or courses.
