Parent Council Essentials is one of a range of information sessions Connect offers free to all its members. These sessions have been carefully planned to provide parents with the kind of information they ask us for and are run in a parent-friendly and enjoyable way with plenty of opportunities for discussion and questions  
Parent Council Essentials is a great way to learn more about how to run your group effectively and also gives you a chance to meet other parents and swap ideas.
Parent Council Essentials is suitable for all parents with an interest in getting involved with their child's learning, and both new and more experienced Parent Council members. It is a whistle-stop tour of the role and responsibilities of Parent Councils – how they work, what they can get involved in. The session will give you lots of ideas for running an effective Parent Council: along the way we will answer some of your questions and might even bust a few of the myths surrounding parental involvement.
