Courses for parents and carers

Speakeasy courses for parents and carers are often delivered via local schools or community groups. In addition, looked-after children services and learning disability services might deliver courses locally.

Although FPA trains professionals across the the UK to deliver FPA Speakeasy courses for parents and carers, we don't currently run courses parents and carers ourselves and we do not have a list of local courses. If you are a parent or carer interested in coming on an FPA Speakeasy course then we recommend that you contact your local Family Information Service or your local education department to see if they offer a course in your local area.


Tailor-made courses

We can tailor a training or consultancy day according to your needs concerning any aspect of sex and relationships education relating to parents and carers.
