This session is for any employee who is a parent/caregiver or for a manager supporting a parent/caregiver

There’s nothing more life changing than embarking on the role of a parent. Roles, routines, responsibilities, wellbeing, mental health, self-care, identities and more can all be turned upside down. Becoming a parent immediately requires adoption of a completely new skillset, as well as a new identity, and is beset with multiple challenges. This course aims to help parents realise the new skillsets they gain and find ways to apply these within the workplace to build confidence. It also aims to encourage workplace inclusivity and understanding relating to parenting and the issues parents face.
