Family Caring Trust

Initial Facilitator Training  

For 0-5 years, 5-15 years & Teenage programmes

So you can support family life in your community

For over two decades, the Family Caring Trust's resources have been among the most popular 

universal parenting materials in Britain and Ireland - over half a million parents have experienced 

at least one of their courses run by social services, councils, community or church organisations.


Aligned to the National Occupational Standards for Working with Parents, 

the Initial Facilitator Training aims to introduce the values, ethos, theoretical, 

evidence base and content of Family Caring Trust programmes as well as 

an experience of programme content and the processes necessary to become a reflective practitioner.


This level of training leads to registration as a Family Caring Trust Facilitator. 

The one-day course will prepare you with the theory and skills to start delivering 

courses in your community and provide you with a comprehensive programme kit 

(including facilitator’s manual, script and DVD).

After the course, your trainer will further supervise and assist you with the delivery of at least 

one of the six programmes  covered during the course and on completion of successful 

delivery of one of the FCT group programmes you will receive your registration card.

You may already possess accredited skills/ transferable learning or tutor experience and 

the Initial Facilitator Training Programme has been developed with this in mind. 

Further accredited qualification is available if required.

Facilitator’s Training using Family Caring Trust Programmes

Family Caring Trust’s programme kits contain everything needed to deliver a course of skill-based 

support to parents, couples and young adults. Since both facilitators and group participants benefit 

when facilitators have access to training and support, Legacy and the Family Caring Trust offer two 

levels of training.

An Initial Training (1 day) and the successful delivery of a course with supervision. 

Initial Training leads to registration as a Family Caring Trust Facilitator on completion of successful 
delivery of a Family Caring Trust group programme.

undertake further Accredited Training to Level 3 standard.
