Abstract

In response to the growing demand for parenting educators, and the need to ensure that educators have basic knowledge and skills rele­ vant to designing, implementing, and evaluating parenting education, Partnering with Parents, an outreach academy was developed. Analysis of data gathered via a follow-up survey, online discussion board, and focus group interviews revealed that participants increased their knowledge and developed skills after participating in the academy. Ninety-five percent of the participants reported being competent or very competent in facilitating parenting education after the academy as compared to 32% before the academy.
