Parent training

Tougher Mind works with schools to help them support and engage with parents and families. The training enables parents to provide additional support to their children, in their studies and in their lives outside the classroom.

We deliver bespoke parent training programmes and events for schools. We will inform schools when our external parent training courses are staged, so that they can make parents aware.  Contact us to obtain further details and find out when our programmes are running.
