Training Trainers Course

The Meriden Family Programme has facilitated two Training Trainers courses in March to support service users and their families gaining access to evidence based family interventions. The Training Trainers course is accessed by people who have completed the initial 5-day BFT course and worked with families under supervision. This course enables them to deliver BFT training and facilitate supervision to people working within their organisations.

Forty more people have now taken on the role of BFT Trainers and Supervisors within their local services. One course was held in Birmingham and one in Manchester. People travelled from all over the UK with a delegate from Japan making the longest journey.

Both courses evaluated well and delegates gave the following feedback –

‘Excellent course – content really useful/helpful. Builds confidence in a safe learning environment. Great reflection of trainer role to BFT process.’

‘Facilitators were super, made for great week, really enhanced the learning. Very good.’

‘Thoroughly enjoyed the training, feeling generally more confident and skilled. Excited to begin the journey ahead.’

‘Thank you – I feel enthused to take family work forward and confident to deliver training and supervise others.’

‘Very well run course. Supportive environment allowing all trainees to get involved fully in role play. Always relevant to practice.’

‘Best training I have been on. All trainers friendly and helpful. I really feel I have learned a lot. Thank you.’

This 5-day course prepares people to present components of BFT, facilitate role play and facilitate group supervision. Delegates are provided with all of the materials required to facilitate a BFT training course.

We have two further courses planned, both of which will take place in or around the Birmingham area:

  • 7-11 October 2019
  • 9-14 March 2020
