1. Positive Parenting: Learn To Make The Most Impact With Your Parenting

The Positive Parenting Course is full of tried and tested techniques, proven to work in bringing about change and beneficial results.

It will teach you how to communicate in the most effective, positive way. All communication is effective. It’s either negative or positive. We’ll look at the mistakes we make as parents, without knowing the impact of what we are doing or saying is having on our children.

This course will show you ways to make the most impact with your parenting. It will teach you how to best connect with your offspring and have a rewarding parent/child relationship. Based on NLP (Neuro Linguistic Programming) principles, it will furnish you with practical ways to implement change and see the results you want.

It will help you best understand and help your child reach their full potential and be happy, confident individuals with self-esteem, self-worth and self-confidence. You will learn how to communicate in a positive and effective way and enjoy parenting.

The Positive Parenting Course is set across ten easy-to-consume modules, to make these positive changes an easier and more enjoyable experience. It also includes a Parenting Magic Journal, with an introduction and a guide on how to use it.

Who would benefit from this course?

This course is for parents who didn’t get the manual when their first child arrived …. That’d be all of us then!

For you, if you’re struggling with parenting and feel you’ve lost control, that your kids don’t listen to you or do as you say? The problem is you’re not ‘connecting’ with them and they’re not ‘hearing you’. This course will help you to communicate easier and create a better relationship with them.

2. Childcare and Early Learning: Learn The Knowledge & Understanding That You Need To Work In Childcare

This course explains the benefits, importance, and value of Childcare and Early Learning. The socialisation & developmental opportunities that it can provide to children are given focus, as are the difficulties faced by parents using day care.

Caring for someone else’s child is a big responsibility and so comes with many guidelines to follow. The Childcare and Early Learning Certificate Course explains Health & Safety directives, Care Plans, Individual Educational Programmes (IEPs), Medical Needs, Safeguarding responsibilities and other associated issues.

You will learn how children develop physically from birth onwards and how this development affects learning. The course also explains the ways in which health, environment, and genetic factors can affect physical development.

Who would benefit from this course?

The Childcare and Early Learning Certificate Course will aid those considering a career in this area. Upon successful completion of this course, you will have gained an understanding of the roles of those working in Childcare, Education, and Playwork, and acquired the knowledge needed to take the next step on your career path.

The information contained within the course is also beneficial to parents who wish to get a better understanding of how their children are being educated and how they may further aid their development at home.

3. Child Psychology: Pursue A Career In Child Psychology

It is the perfect choice for anyone who suspects they might want to pursue in a career in child psychology but does not yet feel they are in complete possession of the facts of what the field entails.

Child psychology is the study of how a young person develops from birth up to adolescence. How he changes emotionally through that time, how his own identity is formed and how he will eventually learn to be able to speak a language. It examines how a child evolves through the processes of information processing and cognitive development.

Behaviourally it looks at how a child begins to understand social behaviours and integrate accordingly. It investigates how motor skills develop, social skills and how identity is formed.

4. Child Counselling: Work With Children Who Wish To Deepen Their Skill Base

It is the perfect choice for anyone who suspects they might want to pursue in a career in child psychology but does not yet feel they are in complete possession of the facts of what the field entails.

Behaviourally it looks at how a child begins to understand social behaviours and integrate accordingly. It investigates how motor skills develop, social skills and how identity is formed.

Who would benefit from this course?

This course is ideal for those who wish to take their first steps in pursuing a career in child counselling or who are currently working in counselling but would like to specialise in this area.

It provides detailed information on the reasons children may require the services of a child counsellor, the techniques used to support a child through fears and anxieties developed through experiencing trauma, and the training path you will need to follow to become qualified.

This course also provides parents with an in-depth understanding of the work of a child counsellor and how they may be able to help their child, should they require it. You will learn how to actively listen to your child and notice the typical signs of trauma and how to go about finding a counsellor who is right for you and your child.

5. Mindfulness for Children: Equip Your Child With The Tools And Benefits Of Mindfulness

Mindfulness is often thought of as something that is used only by adults; in particular, to help with stress, anxiety, and depression. This course aims to help children to benefit from practising mindfulness and arm them with techniques that will help them to handle negative emotions better, and give them tools that they can use throughout their lives.

The Mindfulness for Children Course discusses stress. This includes: the symptoms of stress, the factors that can contribute to a child becoming stressed, why stress exists, and the effects on the brain. We then explain how mindfulness can help counteract these effects and simple ways that it can be brought into the daily routine of a child as easily it can be in an adult’s life, with similar positive effects.

You will learn what mindfulness and mediation are, along with how they are different, how a child can practice both, and what the benefits of each are. We give practical meditation exercises and a list of other simple, one-minute exercises, which are ideal for children to practice.

You will learn about the brain and its ability to create new neural pathways to adapt. This shows that while you may be used to thinking in a certain way, it is possible to change. It is also an interesting study into how our mind takes on new information and develops with us.

It is important to take time out and stop living on autopilot, becoming more mindful of our lives, rather than being swept up in it. We give you techniques to help you and your child do this and advice and tips on how to gain a more fulfilling life through mindfulness.

In a world where we are taught to strive for more and are presented with negative messages of the self and of the world through the various media outlets to which we subscribe, this module brings us back to the beautiful simplicity of appreciating what we have. Children can have great wants and needs, to be taught to appreciate what they have and be grateful for all they receive is a powerful life lesson. We provide you with 2 guided mediations and a 30-day gratitude journal, to help students to practice gratitude.

The course provides exercises designed for children, for practicing mindfulness and helping self-confidence. We also provide 101 affirmations to choose from, for your children to use to quell the negative voice and bring positivity to their subconscious beliefs and inner-most thoughts.

Who would benefit from the course?

The Mindfulness for Children Certificate Course requires no prerequisite knowledge, so is immediately accessible, no matter whether students have studied this subject before or have never heard of it.

The course is designed for parents and others responsible for the care of children, to learn about mindfulness to then aid children in using the practice and gaining the benefits of doing so, all of which are explained in the course materials. As the course gives students a good basic understanding of mindfulness and mediation, care-givers can themselves use the information to begin their own mindfulness practice and to use as a foundation to go onto further study in this area.
