This 1 day training is to train delegates so that they can train facilitators of the Postnatal Plus Parenting group.

Delegates must have previously attended: 2 Day Foundation training AND Parenting Group Facilitators’ training AND have facilitated at least one Solihull Approach parenting group.

If you have already completed the 1 day training on training Solihull Approach group facilitators then you do not need to do this specific training. The Parenting Train the Trainer, equips you to train facilitators to run the Postnatal Plus Parenting group. Just make sure you have the right Trainer’s Manual!

This training day is for practitioners who wish to cascade, as part of their work, the Postnatal Plus Parenting Group Facilitators’ training to other local practitioners, so that those practitioners can facilitate the 8-week Postnatal Plus parenting group ‘Understanding your baby’.

Each facilitator will need a Trainers’ Manual to support delivery of the cascade training. The Trainers’ Manual includes information about delivering each session and practical guidance for trainers, as well as handouts, etc.

When delivering training the trainers are responsible for:

  • Ensuring that those delegates they train have previously attended the 2 Day Foundation training and can provide the dates, location and trainers’ names of that training
  • Providing the Solihull Approach office with the dates and location of the Postnatal Plus Parenting Group Facilitators’ training and the names of those attending
  • Ensuring that those they train to be facilitators have their own copy of the Postnatal Plus Parenting Group Facilitators’ Manual
  • Making facilitators aware of the need to provide data returns on their groups on this website
