Parentskool is a Brighton-based enterprise which delivers practical antenatal courses for new parents.
Managing Director Sarah Watkins planned to expand the business by offering their antenatal training across Sussex and beyond.
This involved developing a ‘train the trainer’ programme. but awarding bodies would not accept the course as it did not cover labour.
Sarah approached the University of Brighton and was invited to discuss her business plans.
A REQ® adviser with specialist antenatal knowledge worked with Sarah over three months to develop the Parentskool train the trainer course. As a result, Sarah aims to have one hundred Parentskool trainers at various UK locations.
The REQ® mark affords Sarah a significant differentiator as Parentskool is now the only quality assured antenatal course for parents in the UK.
