Free online courses for residents of WALSALL:

  • Understanding your pregnancy birth labour and your baby
  • Understanding your baby
  • Understanding your child

Walsall Council are delighted to announce that we have purchased a multi-user licence for three Solihull Approach online courses, for all parents and parents-to-be living in our borough. This means every single resident can access the courses completely free of charge!

These courses are for everyone who wants to be the best mum, dad, grandparent, carer that they can be.

The Solihull Approach aims to improve emotional health and wellbeing by supporting relationships (www.solihullapproachparenting.com ). The courses are written by CAMHS professionals with other health and education workers. They are evidence based and accredited by the DfE.

Together we are aiming to change the culture around parents‘ self-development and improve children’s wellbeing at the same time. A smoother home life is good for concentration, learning and performance at school.

FREE: Online Parenting Course

Resilient Families is a free online parenting course from Parent Zone, part of the team that brings you Parent Info. It’s designed to help parents get to grips with the things they really worry about when children and young people go online.

Resilient Families includes topics such as radicalisation and extremism, cyberbullying and sexting. Parents can take the 3-part course at home as many times as they like, picking up vital advice and information to help them understand the risks their children can face, and arming them with the knowledge to help them cope with it.
