"Brilliant EPEC course"

About: North Workshop Children's Centre (Gateford Site)

(as a service user),

The parenting course at Worksop was brilliant and I have learned so much from it. It would be very beneficial to lots of different kinds of parents.

Hi Hatty 305

Really glad you enjoyed the EPEC "being a parent" course.

We are taking an innovative approach with this type of course by training parents to deliver Parenting programmes. They have been there and done that and can deliver without a professionals "hat" on which is really appealing to parents and it sounds like they are having a big impact with the story you so kindly shared.

we are hoping we can expand the offer in the near future so that more parents can benefit from this course.

many thanks

Thank you for taking the time to let us know about your positive experience on the Empowering Parents Empowering Communitys course at North Worksop Children Centre Gateford site.

It is so good to hear how much you have learned from the course and how it would be beneficial to other parents.

This community based course empowers parents to manage their childrens behaviour and their feelings alongside effective strategies to manage this.

I hope it has inspired you to share your experiences with other parents.
