Professional development and taster events

collaborative organisation

A unique learning experience

CalmFamily CPD

We offer regular continual professional development (CPD) opportunities to our consultants including both online and in person CPD. As a learning organisation training and learning is as important for experienced consultants as for recent trainees. 

CalmFamily CPD includes networking opportunities and highly valuable learning sessions with our own trainers and external specialists. Previous speakers have included Helen Ball and Gill Rapley and many more.

Consultant training taster

Our CPD is also available as a taster event if you’re considering consultant training. In person CPD is a wonderful way to get to know the directors, some consultants, and to get a feel for the ethos of the organisation.

CPD for other professionals

There are many professionals working on their own or in small organisations to support parents and families, and to promote calmer relations. We recognise that being able to run your own in house CPD can take time and resources that you don’t have. This is why we welcome any relevant professional to attend our CPD. 

Whether you  are a doula, a sling consultant or librarian, run antenatal courses,  offer infant massage classes, deliver parent and toddler courses, offer perinatal mental health support or much more you are welcome to attend our CPD. You can benefit from our access to external professionals, our unique approach to supporting families,  and the community of support our CPD offers.

Specific practitioner training

We are working on creating training for relevant professionals to develop specific areas of knowledge and skill. If you work with families and want more training in key areas such as infant sleep, feeding, weaning, toddler behaviour, toddler learning and development and much more, we will have courses for you. We are happy to work with organisations to develop professional training sessions for their members.
