Young parents programme

If you are about to become a young parent, we know that you will have lots of things to consider. You may be worried about how you will manage with feeding and changing a small baby, or how you will care for the child's developmental needs.

You may have more practical concerns about where you will live or how you'll manage a family budget for the first time. Whatever your worries, YMCA Training are here to support you and provide you with a base to meet up with other young people in the same situation as you.

And that goes for Dads too! We understand that young fathers are equally keen to learn all about what the future holds. That's why we welcome all young mums and dads to our programmes.

Courses for young parents
We offer a range of courses at many of our centres dedicated to working with young parents. We will support you as you learn and even help you plan how you could continue with your education, training, career planning and securing employment after the baby is born.

As well as all the practical support you may need we can also offer you valuable qualifications gained while you become parents. These include:
  • Award for parents to be (Entry 3 and level 1)
  • Award in parenting (level 1)
  • Certificate in parents to be and parenting (level 1)
  • Functional Skills Maths and English
  • Introduction to lifestyle management
