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.
