The Qualification

The Certificate in Parenting for Faith course in association with Cliff College will be available from this Autumn as an online course.  Designed to stretch, inform and inspire those working in a professional or voluntary capacity with children, young people and families in churches, this course will equip you to successfully support parents and carers as they disciple their children and explore what parenting for faith might look like in your church and community.
