What Is A Parenting Course?

Parenting is one of the most important jobs in the world, but it can also be one of the most challenging. With an abundance of things to explore and accomplish, figuring out the starting point can be difficult. That's where our online parenting courses come in.

These free online parenting courses offer a convenient and affordable way to learn about parenting from experts. They can help you develop the skills and knowledge you need to raise happy, healthy children. Unlike some other training providers, parents can study the courses we offer for free via an online learning portal.

Throughout the course, parents are supported by an online tutor who is able to mark all submitted work and give feedback to ensure all the information taught is properly understood.

The Benefits Of Taking A Parental Course

• Convenience - You can access online parental qualifications from anywhere, at any time. This makes them a great option for busy parents who don't have time to attend traditional parenting classes.

• Affordability - All our online parenting courses are available to study for free depending on where you live. This means it is a far more affordable opportunity than traditional parenting classes (which can sometimes cost £100's to attend). These qualifications are a great option for parents on a budget.

• Flexibility - Our online parenting courses are typically self-learning, which means you can study at a time and place that suits your individual needs. This is a great option for parents who have busy schedules or who learn best at their own pace.

• Assurance - All of our free online courses that support parenting are nationally accredited. This means they have been tested for quality of learning by an external awarding body such as NCFE CACHE. This ensures that all the course content is accurate and up-to-date with the latest information.

• Community - Many of our learners share their feedback on the course with their child's school or other parents. This helps to build a community of learners who are studying to achieve a similar goal of supporting their child.

Choosing The Right Course For You

When choosing an online parenting course, there are a few things you should keep in mind:

  • Courses for parents can be specific to certain age groups or more general, depending on their child's age and development stage.
  • Your parenting goals: What do you hope to learn from the course?
  • Your availability: How many hours can you spare a week to complete the course?

Eligibility Criteria

We have a wide range of free online qualifications that are available to support parents and carers.

Access to these qualifications is funded through the Adult Education Budget. Due to this, learners must meet the following eligibility criteria.
