SlingSmart Peer Supporter training is delivered via a user-friendly online platform. When you sign up to the course, you will be given a log-in to the course, via this website, where you will be able to access all of the course content at your own pace and convenience. The content is delivered via bite-size videos and information, within modules to complete.
Once you have completed the course, to demonstrate your learning, you will need to complete the required coursework and submit a short video, or Zoom call with Vicky, showing some of the skills which you have learnt.
If the video aspect will be a challenge for you, then get in touch with us to find an alternative option which works for your needs.
There is no time restriction on when you need to complete the coursework, but you will not gain the qualification until it is submitted and passed.
You will have access to continual support, via e-mail and through our Facebook online community, and you will be able to access the videos after qualification, to revise and review whenever you need.
Who the course is for
There are no restrictions on who can complete the course, but it is ideal for those who want to provide basic guidance in safety and comfort, within manufacturer guidelines, for carrying children with a sling or carrier.
If you are looking to charge for your individual time and advice regarding carrying or you would like to learn and teach back carrying, if you would like to support carers and children with additional needs, or outside manufacturers guidelines, then you will need to become a Sling Consultant, and this course will not be right for you.
The full cost of this course is £80.
This includes access to all of the training videos and information, with no time restriction, and access thereafter. This also includes support via e-mail and our Facebook community, with opportunities for CPD. Discounts may be available for companies or libraries training multiple people at once.
