FAQ's - becoming a PARS Licensed Trainer

It is helpful if you can speak good English so that you can fully participate in the full range of PARS activities. However, if you live in a country where there is a PARS Hub, you may be able to join an existing team of PARS trainers who can help you with translation.

The cost for the T2T sessions are included in the PARS Licensed Trainer Fee. The fee for the trainer licence depends on the length of time the licence is issued for and which PARS courses individual trainers want to deliver.  The only other cost to trainers is a Course Registration Fee, which is payable for each course you deliver. For current Licence Fees and Course Registration Fees, please contact us.

Normally PARS Trainers Licences are valid for two years. However, we are happy to consider other time periods in certain circumstances.

We hope that you will renew your licence once it runs out! However, if you do not renew, you are no longer able to deliver PARS training, use any of the PARS materials or to benefit from being part of the PARS Licensed Trainer Team.

Of course! After you have paid your licence fee, it is up to you to decide what fees you charge for your training. The only payment to us is the Course Registration Fee for each course you deliver.

Yes, we ask that you complete and pass our PPP4 customised qualification before becoming a PARS trainer. 

Once licensed, you can deliver PARS training to anybody who works with children in their leisure time, and parents. This could be through organised ‘public’ courses or in-house training specifically for organisations. Our current training team are delivering PARS training to a huge range of audiences, from out of school care and environmental projects to architects, community groups and kindergarten teachers – there is an awful lot of scope for PARS training!

No – you must already be an experienced trainer to become a PARS Licensed Trainer. A qualification for teaching adults is great, but not essential. The T2T and other events you will take part in once you have become a PARS Licensed Trainer will help you to develop new training skills and methods, but you need to be able to demonstrate experience of teaching adults in order to be accepted on the T2T programme.

We don’t do any sort of formal assessment of trainers. We rely on your honesty to tell us about your training experience at the application stage, and your integrity to deliver great PARS training and to work with the rest of the team to continuously improve our practice! We monitor the quality of all PARS training through the evaluation process and feedback from participants, and provide regular feedback to trainers on this at our bi-monthly team meetings and on a one-to-one basis.

The first stage is to complete an application form. We will then get in touch to let you know if this has met our criteria for becoming a PARS Licensed Trainer, and if so, let you know how you can gain your PPP4 qualification.
