Supporting services to implement the Unicef UK Baby Friendly Initiative Achieving Sustainability standards, embedding high quality care for the long term.

This one day workshop will be especially useful for any staff members who have a key role in implementing the Baby Friendly standards. It will explore the four key standards (Leadership, Culture, Monitoring and Progression) in detail. Consideration will be given to how to engage the management team, as well as the role and responsibilities of the Guardian. We will provide you with training materials to use with managers, explaining the value of the Baby Friendly standards for improving the health and wellbeing of babies, their mothers and families. In-depth discussion will also include how to create and support a positive culture across the service and how to monitor progress with this. Tools to support more effective working, time management and analysis of everyday challenges will be used throughout the day. This is a fun, interactive course and is suitable for services at whatever stage in the Baby Friendly process from certificate of commitment to full accreditation.

We are currently unable to conduct face-to-face training due to the ongoing effects of the pandemic and will be running our courses virtually. Please see our courses page for important information on virtual training, including technological requirements, course availability and booking.
