Guidelines for communicating with parents

Short Online Course | Train-the-Trainer approach

Most schools are closed during this period, so TTI’s and school teachers may have set up ‘distance-learning’. This means they may lose control on the learning-process which they normally have in the classroom. Teachers have to give this process over into the hands of the parents. In this case a good and regular contact is very important!

Which topics will we cover?

  • Questions inventoried in advance as starting point of learning.
  • Learning from other participants from other (country) contexts.
  • Explaining the basics of communication with parents.
  • Parent involvement that stimulates the well-being and learning process of pupils.
  • Getting parents involved at the start of the school life of the pupils.

What do we do during the sessions?

Session 1:
The Driestar consultant will lead the first session on communicating with the parents for about 10 persons. In coordination with the partner organization a number of capable, potential trainers will be selected. 

Session 2:
The second session will be a train-the-trainer session with 50% adult education and 50% communicating with the parents.

Session 3:
The third session will be led by the Driestar consultant together with two local trainers for a new group of about 10 persons. The Driestar consultant will be in charge of the session.

Session 4:
One or two local trainers will lead the session for a new group of about 10 persons. The Driestar consultant observes and coaches both trainers afterwards together and individually.
