What We Can Do for You
We offer you access to a range of high quality and innovative training programmes, which are crucial to strengthen skills in the childcare sector and to benefit children.
We in Barnardos offer you this training in a wide variety of areas, to practitioners, parents, carers and all people working with children. All of our training for the childcare sector is conducted within the context of Siolta, the National Quality Framework.
Public training events
Each year we provide a programme of public events to suit the current needs of childcare professionals. These events cover many topical areas and if you work with children between the ages of 0-18 they are suitable for you, whether you work in an early years service or in support services such as childcare, community care, youth services and family support services. Parents may also benefit from some of these events.
Tailored training events for professionals

We can help address many training needs, for example: Supporting Children's Positive Behaviour; Child Protection; Understanding Bullying Issues; Key Working; Involving Fathers; Teamwork. We have a team of experienced trainers who can facilitate high quality training for you and your staff.
