Parent2Parent® (P2P) is a new and exciting programme that has been developed and is being piloted by Herts for Learning (HfL), to support parents in understanding how to make a real difference to the learning of their children.
As educators, they know that parental involvement in children’s education from an early age has significant effect on educational achievement, and continues to do so into adolescence and adulthood. This programme has been developed in response to feedback from schools that have highlighted the challenges parents face in supporting their child’s learning at home.
The Parent2Parent® programme lifts the lid on some useful teaching techniques and explores what teachers know about education and how we learn best. The key to its success is that the programme is being delivered by parents for parents. Trained by Herts for Learning’s expert advisers, parents will lead Parent2Parent® sessions and reveal the simple ways in which parents can support their children’s education and aid their learning – both in school and at home. Training will be delivered in a series of eight modules, each focused on a different learning technique.
Three pilot programmes are being run across Hertfordshire during 2014. The first pilot, involving 15 link schools in Hemel Hempstead and the Link Family Services Centre launched in May and two parents are currently being trained to deliver the first P2P modules. Two further pilot programmes will run during the autumn term across London Colney and Radlett, with Parent2Parent® launching to all Hertfordshire schools during the spring term 2015.
