National Training Programme:
Evidence Based Assessment Tools, Analysis and Planning with Children and
Families

Update and revised training schedule


Accreditation:

The Institute of Leadership & Management (ILM) and City & Guilds (C&G) have accredited both the
Assessing Parenting and Assessing Families courses. Child and Family Training (C&FT) is the ILM
Endorsed Programme Provider for the period covered by Phases 2-4 of this schedule.

Trainees on each course will be awarded 5 credits at level 5 of the Credit and Qualification Framework
for Wales (CQFW) on successful completion of the assessment tasks and an ILM/C&G Certificate of
Endorsement of their learning.

C&FT will register each trainee with the Institute of Leadership & Management (ILM). Each Local
Authority will be responsible for the registration fees of their trainees, which is £50.00 per trainee.

C&FT will be responsible for assessing each trainee’s Learner Portfolio throughout the period covered
by Phases 2-4 of this schedule.


Training the Trainers Programme:

Both Assessing Parenting and Assessing Families are manualised training courses.

This programme provides for six trainee trainers to be trained to deliver the Assessing Parenting course
and six trainee trainers to be trained to deliver the Assessing Families course. Trainee trainers can
elect to train either one or both courses.

The training the trainers programme has three stages:
   (1) attend as a participant on the relevant course in Phase 2 and complete the Learner’s Portfolio;
   (2) train two complete courses in Phases 3 and 4 with a C&FT trainer
   (3) complete the Learner’s Portfolio at the end of Phase 4.

C&FT and ILM will progress the work on accrediting the training the trainers programme in February
2011.
