Training: Parents

Volume 458: debated on Thursday 22 March 2007

To ask the Secretary of State for Education and Skills what progress has been made towards the establishment of the National Parenting Academy. (128270)

The National Academy for Parenting Practitioners (NAPP) is the working title for what was previously termed the National Parenting Academy. This change of name recognises that the Academy is to be established to support the development and training of all who deliver services to parents.

The process to select the preferred supplier for the Academy is under way. We intend to confirm the supplier and award the grant to deliver the NAPP by the end of April 2007. The official launch for the NAPP is planned for Parents’ Week which starts on 15 October 2007.
