Online Training for Take 3


We are now offering the option of either training online or face-to-face, so that we can continue to train and support family workers who may struggle to attend in-person for the full 3 days.

Take 3 training attendees gain an in-depth understanding of the structure and ethos of the evidence-based Take 3 parenting course and its key themes of self-care, nurture and structure.

We explore particular challenges that workers may face when engaged in online or telephone parenting support, and we explore strategies and solutions to support family workers in continuing to give valuable support to those families who need it most even when they cannot meet face-to-face.

We have ensured that the key aspects that make our face-to-face training so popular remain at the heart of our online training.

Excellent course and trainer. Really feel that my time was well spent and this will really enhance my practice. Thoughtfully facilitated in respect of need for online learning due to Covid-19

Our usual bonus sections are also covered during the training – which include tips on engaging parents; strategies for change and using evidence-based structured support.

New sessions from the updated 2020 Take 3 manual include ‘Teens and Screens’, and updated information about the adolescent brain.

The online training takes place over the course of 6 two hour sessions. ‘Home-Tasks’ are set every day of the training, which trainees are expected to complete. These tasks will usually take less than 10 minutes to complete, with a maximum of 45 minutes.

Each trainee will need to have access to a complete Take 3 Manual for the duration of the online training, as well as access to the DVD/USB card in order to access the dramatised clips.

The cost of the commissioned online training is £3000 for a maximum of 8 participants, and lasts for 6 two hour sessions which usually take place Monday to Wednesday over two concurrent weeks. The agenda for the training can be downloaded here.

Nicky was extremely skilled at engaging us all in reflective discussion…I did not feel there was a single moment where my levels of attention or focus reduce and this was I feel due to the content and delivery of the course. This will hopefully enable parents to feel similar experiences… of feeling nurtured and supported in a non-biased way to approach areas of support via Take 3 to work through difficulties in their own families
