Training: Engaging with Fathers and Male Carers

London – Engaging with Fathers and Male Carers in Early Years

Our Friends at Fathers Plus in Newcastle Upon Tyne are heading south to share their expertise with fellow professionals.

According the Fathers Plus, working with fathers early on matters to children in later life say which is why they are hosting a day’s training in London on how to engage with fathers and male carers in early years settings.

The training will be held on March 6th, 2012 from  10:00 am through to  3:00 pm and focus on:

  • the needs of dads to be and how to develop and deliver services to meet these needs
  • the importance of male involvement in breastfeeding initiation and maintenance
  • how to get fathers and family men into early years services
  • How to keep fathers engaged– from publicity to recruitment, is your service men friendly?
  • The importance of men in early learning

The cost of the training is £99 per person
