Find out about Fatherhood Institute training courses
The Fatherhood Institute offers a comprehensive range of services to support all children and families service providers. All our services can help you fulfil the requirements of the Dad Test. Special discounts on all training and consultancy are available to agencies signed up to Champions Plus.
We offer courses aimed at service managers and frontline workers from a variety of settings, including Children’s Centres, maternity services, child protection, schools and family learning services, Connexions, child and adolescent mental health services, teenage pregnancy services and youth offending teams.
Our courses are delivered by experienced Fatherhood Institute trainers and include a mixture of taught sessions, small group ‘workshop’ exercises and large group discussion. All of our courses show you how to develop and implement a whole-team approach to engaging with fathers – and can help you do the Dad Test.
The format for each course reflects the national policy agenda and our extensive knowledge of ‘what works’, but we also consult with you in depth at the outset to tailor YOUR course to YOUR specific requirements.
