Run under the structure and guidelines of the Race Equality Foundation, we will offer the parents a 13-week training programme. Each session will be 3 hours long and run by two SFSC qualified, and experienced facilitators, whilst using materials purchased from the Race Equality Foundation. The sessions will also provide support to parents to ensure their attendance. This includes the provision of refreshments, childcare, and transport to make it easier for parents to attend, all of which is free of charge. Parental learning and engagement resources will be provided in multiple languages and formats suitable for our multi-ethnic users whose English is not their first language.  It will cover issues such as managing anger, developing empathy, violence prevention techniques, understanding behaviour, emotional management, and social skills.

This programme will help with providing the following:

“A safe space to share your views and be listened to.”

“An opportunity to get information and ideas to help with decisions about bringing up your children.”

“New skills, and support in developing your confidence connections with the wider communities and services in your area.”

This SFSC training will also provide the parents with further advantages, including:

Given that it is accredited through the Open College Network, the parents will benefit from the prospects of getting a job or getting into further education upon successful completion. This is a rare opportunity for most of BAME parents.

It will link the parents with our community building and support strategies that “draws on social learning theory and uses interactive learning methods, such as encouraging parents to share their experiences and values and undertaking practical activities practised in the session and then implemented at home.”
