Free online courses for parents

Dear Parent/Carers

Please find information below about free online courses, which are now available for parents, carers and childcare professionals.

Parents and staff can now access online courses about children, completely free of charge. The innovative courses have been put together by the Solihull Approach, an accredited, evidence based approach established 20 years ago by psychologists, health visitors and other health professionals. The courses usually cost up to £39 each, however using the Access Code: NWSOL (valid until November 2022) at ourplace.co.uk you can register for your own account and revisit the courses indefinitely without paying a penny.

An example of one of the available courses 'Understanding Your Child' is aimed at parents, carers, and professionals caring for children aged 0-18 years. It looks at brain development, play, styles of parenting, sleep, temper tantrums, communication and more. This course is based on the nationally and internationally acclaimed face-to-face course offered by the Solihull Approach and has 9-11 modules each taking around 20 minutes (the main screens have optional audio voice-overs) as well as interactive activities, quizzes, video clips and practical handouts.

The courses included in this package and access code are:

  • Understanding your pregnancy, labour, birth and your baby
  • Understanding your baby
  • Understanding your child
  • Understanding your Teenagers Brain

I hope you find this useful.
Kind regards,

Mr Gerrard,
Head Teacher
