In 2016 ACET Ireland launched a new initiative for parents and those who work with parents.
The Parent/Teen Communication Skills Course is specifically tailored for migrant communities, addressing their particular challenges in raising teenagers within a cultural context different from that in which parents grew up.
The course will be delivered in conjunction with staff of ACET Northern Ireland and is accredited to the Open College Network (NI) at Level 2 (similar to FETAC Level 5-6). For more details contact Richard Carson at firstname.lastname@example.org
This course is part of Project Hope, our initiative with migrant-led and multicultural churches. The need for support in parenting has been identified following extensive consultation with the many church leaders we have trained and their congregants.
By equipping parents in their communication with a new generation of Irish young people we are addressing areas such as sexual health and HIV.
