In 2012 National Parents Council Primary delivered its first summer course for teachers on Working with Parents to support their children’s learning. We received very positive feedback from the teachers who participated in the course. The course introduces participants to NPC who we are and what we do. It explores topics such as parents as partners in education. It also discusses the current research regarding the involvement of parents in their children’s education. It looks at practical approaches for teachers and schools on how to involve parents in their children’s education. The final topic is on school self evaluation with regard to parental involvement.

Review of summer course
My name is Kathleen McKiernan and I am in my third year as the Home School Community Liaison teacher in Holy Rosary Primary School in Oldcourt Tallaght.I attended the summer course for teachers entitled “Working with Parents to support their children’s learning” run by the National Parents Council from July 2nd-6th in 2012.
This was a very informative and enjoyable week. The course content was very varied and interesting especially the information we were given on the NCP itself, its structures and how it supports parents and teachers in schools.
While I teach in a school where Parental involvement has always been central, I learned much from both the tutors and the discussions within the group. The group, made up mostly of classroom teachers, were given very useful information and support on how to involve parents in their children’s learning. We explored some of the research
to back this up and were given lots of very practical ideas on how to implement it.
The course succeeded in doing “what it says on the tin” and was very useful for both classroom and Home School Community Liaison teachers.

We are intending to run the above summer course again this year from Monday 1st July to Friday 5th July. If you would like more information please contact Deirdre Sullivan, Training and Development Officer at dsullivan@npc.ie or directly on 01-8874481.
