peep learning together programme training

Who for:

Peep Learning Together Programme Training is for practitioners who work - or plan to work - with mums, dads, carers and babies or young children, to contribute to:

  • strong parent-child relationships
  • increased parental knowledge and confidence in how to support their child's learning and play in day-to-day life, from birth to school
  • children’s personal, social and emotional development, communication and language, early literacy, early maths, and health and physical development. 

The training is relevant whether you work in a children's centre, community centre or family hub; in a school, nursery or early years setting; in a health centre, social care setting, library, prison, museum, stay and play or toddler group, or in the home - anywhere that involves working with families.

Our video provides an overview about using Peep in your organisation. You'll see and hear from Peep families, practitioners, managers and commissioners:

Aims - the training equips practitioners to:

  • engage and support parents to build on what they already do to enhance their child's early learning and development, through talking and playing as part of everyday life,  
  • explore practical ideas, strategies and resources, using the comprehensive and flexible Peep Learning Together Programme,
  • deliver universal or targeted sessions with parents and children together, to meet local needs - in one-to-one, group or drop-in sessions; indoors, outdoors or virtually,
  • contribute to a smooth transition to nursery or school if appropriate, helping families to feel ready for school,
  • gain a practitioner accreditation unit (optional, see below: 3 credits at level 3 in England, Wales and Northern Ireland, equivalent level 6 in Scotland or level 5 in the Republic of Ireland).

'I thoroughly enjoyed the course and I was not really expecting to as it was online.  I think that Peep is a wonderfully flexible, accessible resource which can be used to develop and enhance what we already do as practitioners and what parents do every day.'  Catherine, Family support worker, County Fermanagh  [more feedback below]
